Three lovely friends — Wendy Russ, Stephen Parrish, and J.A. Zobair — have been running a wonderful fundraiser to help me manage the next two months of my recovery without having to worry about making rent or purchasing costly medications.
Their efforts have touched me more than I can say, and I’m usually quite good with words. In a nutshell, 29 writers have contributed stories to an incredible anthology — Facing the Sun — and you can receive a copy by making a donation. Any donation.
They had planned to turn it over to Telling Stories as soon as I was out of the hospital, and I was supposed to be released on Easter Saturday or Sunday. But then unwanted test results showed that I had developed diabetes insipidus, and needed more care.
So I really only arrived home late Thursday night, dry and weary, and I needed a couple of days recovery to feel ready to write again.
So, if you’d like to help, you can. The donate button is at the top of the sidebar. If you’d like to leave a comment, I’d love it. This has been one of the hardest and most rewarding weeks of my life, and Wendy, Steve, JAZ, and all of you have made it so.
But the rest of that enormous thank you will wait for another day.
Later: Thanks to everyone. I’ve ended the campaign; it made a terrific difference in our lives.
