Dear Minnow,
thank you so much for these updates. May I add my very best wishes to Diana, with hopes that she can enjoy a reasonably comfortable festive season and make a full recovery. She has given us a great deal, and I wish we could give something back.

She has asked me to thank everyone on the list for their good wishes, which
have been cheering her at dark moments: hospital is a horrid place to be.
"Warm fuzzy comfort" is apparently a good way to express her feelings when
she has been able to recall you all to mind when she was down.

Yesterday the medics had a quick panic lest she might be developing a
thrombisis, but the scan today showed that it was not, more likely simple
abreaction to the lactose in one of the medicines they have been giving her
that had caused a swelling at the wound-site, and they plan to send her
home this afternoon.
