All is well!

Kathleen and I just talked with Dr. DelaMelena: surgery is complete, and Iris flew through smoothly. We’ll go meet her in an hour or so, after they’ve eased her back out of anesthesia.
There’s a man sharing the waiting room with us who looks remarkably like Iris’s father, fedora, mustache, and all. A reassuring proxy for Doc Sullivan, keeping a watchful eye on his daughter.
