DAN RIEHL IS SICK: Dr. Melissa Clouthier writes:

Sorry I didn’t write earlier. Thought you’d want to know that Dan went into the hospital last night with respiratory failure. They had to do pulmonary bypass because he couldn’t be intubated. The doctor gave him a 50-50 chance of living.

I talked to the nurse today, she thinks he’s doing better. They’re currently chasing his heart rate and trying to keep him oxygenated — he has a nasal canula now, which is not that big of a deal. They said they’d try to move him out of ICU tonight but weren’t sure.

He’s at the Fairfax County hospital.

Elizabeth Scalia suggested that I ask you to post a link to his website and maybe his tip jar. Not even sure if he has one.

He does. Here’s the link to his page. The donate button is on the right. I just kicked in a hundred bucks.
