No news is good – or at least not bad – news

Over the last three weeks, C has been quietly recovering and getting stuck in to some needlepoint, knitting and daytime TV – antiques and property porn mostly – while making the odd forays out and about.

The stent was a success – C has barely felt sick since, and has recovered some of her appetite.

She's home!

C has just got back from the hospital with normal blood sugar and temperature and a brand-new stent.

another bulletin

C very much better today, has managed to eat and drink without throwing up for the first time since Sunday. She's taking notice and haranguing the hospital staff, which is a good sign.

As I suspected, she won't be home until Sunday at the earliest, as they insist on getting her system stabilized first.

brief bulletin

C had an endoscopy procedure today to remove the plastic stent and put in a metal one. I saw her immediately afterwards, and she was understandably a long way from mid-season form, although the fever has apparently been brought under control.

We'll find out tomorrow, I hope, how long she will be staying in hospital. She's hoping to come home tomorrow, but I fear those hopes are bound to be dashed.

I'll post here as soon as I know
