Fluid level check? Any external leakage? A leak can happen suddenly and cause slippage, but it sure sounds like this situation has been leading up to eventual failure.
Also sounds like an internal hydraulic pressure leakage which can cause delayed engagement and late shifts and converter clutch unlock.
If any of these 'numerous incidents' are documented on shop repair orders, you may have some warranty coverage or good-will help coming.
At 228K miles, I as a shop technician would seriously try to convince the owner to go with a fresh reman unit and radiator cooler (if plugged or restricted). It would just help protect both of us from problems down the road.
At that mileage, much internal hardware would appear to be beat and I would hate to have to make the bench call on whether to reuse the part or not.
Wait to hear from the shop and go with the best option.

That sounds very satisfactory. Hopefully he in turn can get some kind of reimbursement from his vendor for the failed TC.
