I recived an email with this info on it;

Gene Poinc update

Myself and several other members of the Shadow Digest are phoning the hospital daily to inquire about Gene's condition. Others are e-mailing me personally to inquire. I feel an update here is in order.

Unfortunately, he has been moved to the Intensive Care unit hence is unreachable by phone. Also, the IC nurses we speak to are reluctant to give out information to anyone other than "family." But, by devious means (especially by one who's initials are G.N.) we have a few facts ---

Gene was moved to the IC because he was having trouble breathing and was put on an inhalator. Gene, the "superman," did not like those tubes up his nose and kept pulling them out. So, they moved him to the IC and put him under heavy sedation.

He is not in IC because of an emergency or eminent "life threatening" condition.

He was supposed to have a stress test. He has not. He was supposed to have a double bypass operation. He has not.

When they give him a break from the sedation he is rational and jokes with the nurses.

This is all the information any of us has been able to obtain thus far.

Gene obviously has a long road ahead. The last time I spoke with him he asked me to thank all of you for your concern and kindnesses. He considers you all his

Most magically yours,

Although I do not know him personally, I know him from his works. I hope he may get well soon. Smile

Last I heard from Larry White, the double bypass is still in the plans. I can't imagine a stress test in his situation -- I'd have thought they'd go straight to an angiogram. But they must've done something like that to determine that a double bypass was advisable.

I'll be watching here for further word. I've sent my best wishes by a couple other channels but if anyone is getting word to him, please feel free to repeat them.

Go, Gene!

I'll miss him a lot.
