There's more than that, actually. Shards of Honor we see her not really
grokking Aral Vorkosigan or Cordelia's fascination/love of him.
The Warrior's Apprentice we actually get a good amount of her just before
and after his trip to Tau Verde.
There are small mentions of her in A Civil Campaign and Cryoburn as well.
