Sheffield mother and daughter injured in Manchester terror attack still in hospital
Kelly, aged 32, was killed when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device as fans were leaving. Claire, aged 33, suffered a broken jaw and Hollie, aged 12. suffered two broken legs.
Kelly's partner Ian Winslow, aged 36, said both have had operations and remain "side-by-side" in Manchester Royal Infirmary's high-dependency unit.
He added: "They are both awake and talking and have improved since last week.
"But we are not sure when they might be discharged. Even then, I don't think they will come home straight from the hospital in Manchester. They will probably be transferred to a hospital in Sheffield."
The Waverley man, who works as a mortgage broker, added that he and Kelly's parents, Kim and Kevin, visited a memorial to the victims in Manchester at the weekend. He is also set to return there with his daughter from a previous relationship Phoebe, aged seven, later this week.
He said: "It was very emotional. The tributes have been overwhelming and we are heartened to see that there are still a lot of good people out there."
Ian previously described how he and Kelly had just put a deposit down on a house the day the attack happened and had started trying for a baby.
He described Kelly, who worked for Aviva and lived in Arbourthorne, as a "beautiful person" who "loved life."
Following the attack, security has been stepped up with bag searches at major venues such as Sheffield Arena and the City Hall.
