Default Marc Miller "My Health Status"

In case anyone here missed it:

Marc wants the fanbase to know the following:

Wow.

I am in reasonably good health. I exercise. Eat more-or-less right. Probably could lose ten pounds, and now probably will over the next several months. But much of heart trouble is genetic, and my father and both grandfathers had heart issues.

Iíll have the surgery October 23, spend about a week in recovery, and be home by Halloween.

I have cancelled my appearance at GameHoleCon, and several planned trips through the end of the year.

My prognosis is good. My spirits are good. I expect a full recovery, and no complications.

Iíll make various announcements as necessary, and this is not a secret, so if someone is curious, or interested, you can share this information with them.

I appreciate the support I get on so many levels from all of you. Thank you.

Marc
Marc sent this information via email, and via post on TravellerRPG.com. As I know several fans here are neither on the mailing list nor active on COTI, i decided to share it here.

Forgot to mention; Marc's surgery was rescheduled to yesterday. No word yet on how it's gone.

Marc's recovery continues. If you've ordered from FFE, please, be patient.
