Last I heard about it was a short note tucked in the middle of the
newspaper.  It was about one or two weeks ago, and said that the procedure
had just been done, and the recipient was in an undisclosed location and
was, reasonably enough, requesting privacy.  If I (and the reporter
responsible) got this right, we probably won't be hearing much day-to-day
information. I see no reason why there should be anything released for 
several months, at the least; if there's bad news, there's no reason to 
release it publicly, while it will take at least 6 months, I would think, 
before anything good looks realistic.
