I have found out since I posted this that extraordinary circumstances has prevented the person sending me a print from doing so. Get well and don't worry about the print. It can wait.
It goes to show two important things:
1. I should find out the facts before I bitch about my own misfortune (I'm sorry for my selfishness, I feel like a microbe right now).
2. It is important with information flow. I think most of us are reasonable people, especially if reasons why are known or addressed.
