Got a surprise phone call from Kaja this afternoon. The hospital deemed her "Sufficiently Cured" and I could come and take her home.
This I have done.
She is feeling a bit weak, and has a bucket-load of pills she has to pour down her throat every day, and she seems to be faintly glowing, but they didn't have to gut her like a fish, for which I am pretty darn grateful. For those of you who wrote to say (in essence) "hang in there", thanks! Those who got a card into the mail- double thanks!
Now I can get back to work. Whew!
