At least she can meet up again with Peter Cushing because they really hit it off he called her "such a sweet girl" and she called him "ever so charming"..

I don't understand how she got cleared to fly so soon after her initial cardiac issue.
People at low risk
The British Cardiovascular Society recommends that people who have very low risk of having another heart attack may be able to fly as early as three days after having one. You are considered to be at very low risk if:
this is your first heart attack
you are under 65
you have no complications
no further treatment is planned
The UK Civil Aviation Authority recommends that people with no complications, who are at low risk of another event, can fly seven to 10 days after a heart attack. National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance says that most people with heart failure can travel by plane. However, during the flight, legs and ankles tend to swell and breathing may become more difficult for people with severe heart failure. Again, check with your GP or heart specialist before planning any air travel.
