Progress Continues on All Fronts!Things look very positive for The Bring Bruce Bayside Fund. It shows that fandom recognizes a good idea, like getting Bruce Gillespie to Corflu and Potlatch in early 2005, and is willing to support it. We still have a distance to go to our minimum goal of $2,500, so this is still a very good time to send your donation. You'll find info about how to do so, including the scoop on PayPal, in This Very Issue.
High Priestess Ankle UpdateAfter an extended stay in Yucaipa, California, with Ken & Aileen Forman (and Ben & Cathi Wilson), to convalesce, Joyce returned home to Las Vegas on June 3rd. The next day, she went for a set of X-rays on her two broken ankles and then saw her surgeon on Monday.
Dr. Rimaldi said her ankles have basically healed and scheduled her for therapy starting Thursday (June 10). Unfortunately, when she went to the first session, the doctor determined that she was not yet ready for the kind of rehab they do at this particular institution and has instead authorized a home caregiver to come and work with Joyce.
Joyce is not in much pain, but she is still in a wheelchair and not able to put weight on her feet, which are still swollen. Her general health is so-so, but she doesn't have a lot of musculature after languishing for six weeks.
She is very determined to get things back to normal and has already resumed both her professional and fannish writing. And, of course, she continues to chart the finances and participate in the administration of the BBB Fund.
