Bill Crider's Pop Culture Magazine: Hey, blog fans.  I'm out of the hospital after bei...: Hey, blog fans.  I'm out of the hospital after being poked, prodded, tested. and humiliated.  I'm in much worse shape than when I we...

And this update on Facebook:

Dear Facebook friends: I've been reading your many posts of love and
support, and I'll admit that sometimes I've had tears in my eyes. I'm
out of the hospital now, having been subjected to more tests and

they're happy to see anyone. Turns out they weren't as lucky as we
thought, though.

I won't be posting anywhere for a while, if

for me. I'll be trying to get into M. D. Anderson and hoping for a
miracle. Thank you all so much for your continuing to keep me in your
minds and hearts.

Steve and I are hanging on and holding our heads up.

Glad to hear it, Reine. We need some good news.

All of this is just crushing. I keep waiting for the post that shows a glimmer of a turnaround. Bill has been such a supporter of my books and I hope he has some idea of what that means to me. Last time we spoke I mentioned how cool it was that Jack Vance was a fan of his. Bill was, of course, the picture of modesty. Crossing my fingers...
