Subject: [family] Mother of the Child update
Security: Public
Mother of the Child continues in hospital. She was supposed to transfer out of ICU yesterday, but they were having trouble finding a ward bed. Her next medical checkpoint is a set of tests Saturday to determine if the internal healing is progressing as hoped. If so, she may come home Sunday night. If not, there are several 'Plan B' procedures of varying dreadfulness, some to address the primary problem, some to address the secondary effects of that problem, all of which will extend her hospital stay. She is relatively comfortable and in good spirits. the_child is coping reasonably well at this point, but if Plan B comes into effect, that will challenge her, a lot.

Right now it's just time. The doctors don't want to correct the problem surgically unless her body isn't able to manage the process on its own. Hence the Saturday tests.

Thanks for the update. I have faith that her body will heal itself and there won't be any need for plan B.
