Jim Ward is apparently very sick...

Post by Treebore »

"I wish to thank everyone who has wished me well lately. Right now I'm sicker than a dog and going into the hospital every week to do testing to see what I have. I have, most of my life, been extremely healthy which makes this time unusually frustrating. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers, I would use all the help I can get.

thanks,

James M. Ward"

Considering he gave us Of Gods and Monsters, Towers, Tainted Lands, and some seriously good issues of Crusader on something resembling a schedule, I thought C&C fans would want to know.

Thanks for sharing that info! I remember him being a bit tired looking at Gary Con in March. Here's hoping for the best!!

His int is too high for illusory healing, and I am out of CLW potions. But he gets my sincerest and best wishes for a speedy recovery.

I talked to Jim right after Gencon. He's hanging in there as they try to determine what is going on.

He's in our thoughts and prayers.

I know Tim Kask and a few of the other old TSR regulars over at DF are keeping close contact with Jim. I'll make sure to post any news as to his condition here if I hear it.

This sort of thing has been happening with alarming frequency the last while.

Possibly gamer-itis - meaning, too much sitting around and not enough exercise, too many snack foods, etc. And I not pointing out Jim, many gamers are guilty of this, including myself. It doesn't hurt to get up and stretch 'em out once in awhile! There is something about eating right and exercise - it actually works!
I'm wishing Jim all the best and a speedy recovery!!

Get well, Jim! I'm very much sympathizing with you. Still feeling like crap myself--only I know what I'm dealing with.

Best wishes for a full and quick recovery.

Hoping he pulls through (and If you are reading this Jim, Kathy sends her best!

Jim you are a great asset, wealth of knowledge, and generally great guy.

You taught me a while back that when the wind blows we're all going to die! I'll be praying for a calm!
