Query was sent 8/12 but about two weeks in, realized I had forgotten about a query with another agent at the same agency; I posted my story on the QT forum here if anyone is interested (also didn't want to type out too long of a comment):

Anyway, after addressing my error, I had withdrawn the query on 8/26, apologizing for any confusion, etc but the very next day I got my response from Ms. Kerr saying she's interested and wants to either coordinate with the other agent if she ends up being interested too or after a pass (which at this point, it's been well over two months so I'm not expecting much in that regard) to send the ms her way! I have been excited yet trying to keep my cool at the same time for the past almost week now, keeping my fingers crossed for a good outcome!!

UPDATE 9/4/19: First agent passed this morning, then I immediately notified Ms. Kerr who responded a few hours later after I re-queried with a request for a partial!!! Said to give her 8-12 weeks due to her current workload, keeping my fingers AND toes crossed!!!
