Emily's out of surgery (after less than an hour!) and doing well. The doctor found the problem -- which was a large part of the concern -- and it's something relatively common and manageable; will have more info about that later. She's going to be in recovery for a few hours and then will probably be able to come home, although it'll take over a week for her to be fully recovered.
Endometriosis. I'm learning a lot about it ... it's an odd, not terribly serious but painful, treatable and not fun problem that Emily has. She's asleep now, thanks the the influence of really good drugs ... so I'm off to take a nap too. I know I've got comments to reply to, but I have no brain power: Will catch up with all of you later tonight.
