Jerry Pournelle is gaining ground four days after being hospitalized with a stroke.
His son Alex told Facebook readers “He’s already doing much better in a day. Mom is doing better, too.”
An official update on Chaos Manor said:
Jerry continues to make much progress. Even in the last day the differences are marked. He has moved yet again to a long-term acute rehab assignment for speech/throat and physical therapy, where he will stay at least through the holidays.
Harlan Ellison, recovering from his own stroke in October, called Jerry to wish him well. The conversation revealed that Jerry had been put in exactly the same room at St. Joseph’s Harlan had occupied.
Sounds like they do good work at St. Joseph’s, and that room might deserve a commemorative plaque – but what should it say?
