FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
After successful surgery to remove a blockage which caused a stroke Sunday, Chief Justice Catherine Kimball's condition continues to improve rapidly. She has been released from ICU and is expected to be moved to a private room later today. As with any surgical procedure, rest is of the utmost importance, and so the family is still limiting visitation to family members. Contrary to recent press reports, there are no known remaining blockages, and Chief Justice Kimball is talking extensively with her family and her doctors. The family continues to thank everyone for their concerns and prayers.
