 It doesn't specify who's ill, but I suspect it's more likely to be Peter
 (Robin's husband, who's 73) than Robin herself, and it's rather alarming
 that it's serious enough to prevent her from making the trip.

You would suspect wrong. Robin has a very bad flu and was truly not up to a
grueling US trip. Peter, on the other hand, is fine. (And still 72.) sdn
