Long Day: The FM Update

Many thanks to all the CQ readers who have left comments and e-mails for the First Mate, who has now been in the hospital for two days over what was supposed to be a three-hour maintenance visit. The bleeding that started yesterday continued today -- again, nothing than produces much volume, but as long as it continues they can't proceed with the rest of the tasks left from Friday. Now it looks like she may be stuck there through Monday.

Oh, and that biopsy that started the whole problem? They never got kidney tissue. All they got was a bit of fat tissue. They're going to have to do that over again, too.

Needless to say, the FM is not a happy sailor tonight. But she's well and in good hands, at one of the nation's highest-rated hospitals according to US News & World Report. She wants me to thank all of you for your kind thoughts and prayers and wishes you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah.
