Reed comes through surgery well

OLYMPIA -- Secretary of State Sam Reed is out of surgery for kidney cancer, and his wife Maggie reports "everything went really well."

Reed had a minimally invasive surgery and is expected to make a full recovery. He's not expected to need chemotherapy unless the cancer has spread further than expected.

He'll be in the hospital for two or three days, then recuperating at home for a couple weeks.
