Hi folks -
Alex's wife Nancy here. Alex is still in the hospital after complications arose post-surgery. He has peritonitis and is very seriously ill, so it may be a while before he's back at a computer. At this point he is still in the ICU and has been kept fully sedated. He has made small improvements every day, and we are hoping for a full, if long, recovery. Many people have asked how they can help. I'm in the process of figuring that out; as his proxy I have had to focus on decisions his healthcare during this very critical time and haven't had much time to think ahead. I will certainly let folks know what I need when I have the time to think about it! I feel so lucky that we belong to such wonderful communities; the clay community, the community of Ithaca/Trumansburg, and the Cornell University Library community. Everyone has been so supportive and helpful during this difficult time.
Please keep Alex in your thoughts and prayers during this challenging time, and thanks for your support and care.
