I am sorry this incident happened but I think if you just let things cool off and she has recovered from her surgery you may be able to get together and talk it through and even laugh about it. For now let it go and no beating yourself up over a human misunderstanding.
Often what we are trying to say is not heard by the receiver in the way we meant our comment.

Thanks everyone for your encouraging words. I do tend to obsess about things I feel guilty about and you've helped me to think about being a little easier on myself
neither of you are crazy- your comment in hindsight wasnt the best idea, but you had NO intention of upsetting this woman, whose reaction seems quite severe. dont apologise any more- you have taken the high road and done the best you can. is this typical behaviour from this woman? have you ever known her to be easily upset or angered? i say leave her alone for awhile. let her calm down- she sounds a tad dramatic- you dont deserve to be hung up on, thats just petty.
waste no more time worrying- dont let this hold you back

If you have no good, friendship feelings for someone it is better to let them go then to keep on trying.
So my best advice to you would be kick the obessing to the curb and move on with your life as she will with hers.
Good Luck and take care
Thank you Aries, I am the elder of the bunch, I have been through so much of this kind of behavior that I trust my red flags.
