A note from Jessica Baen and Toni Weisskopf recently published on Baen’s Bar carries this description:
The doctors describe it as a massive bilateral stroke in the thalamus. Jim has not regained consciousness and his condition has become severe. He is resting comfortably now, and appears to be in no pain; however the doctors’ prognosis is grave.
This is of course not good, especially for such a helpful, hardworking gentleman. I’d appreciate any good will, good wishes or divine favours which you could forward/request on Jim’s behalf.
This is not a perfect universe, but that observation doesn’t excuse us from being devoted to improving it in at least some ways.
