Update: Vicki Sant back in DC; complete recovery expected

Vicki Sant is already back in Washington after a quick diagnosis at the Mayo Clinic last week. In an e-mail to friends, her husband Roger shared the story: After a scuba dive three weeks ago in the Philippines, Sant suffered from takotsubo cardiomyopathy -- a severe stress-induced heart condition that was triggered when she surfaced in very rough seas without her diving boat nearby. Sant, one of D.C.'s leading philanthropists, was airlifted to Manila and spent five days in intensive care, then headed to Mayo last week for testing. Her doctor said she'll completely recover from the incident; the Sants are -- as you might expect -- "incredibly happy to be home."
