I know that a lot of you are fans of John L. Parker's Once a Runner. I just wanted to let everyone know that John has been admitted to the hospital (Brigham & Women's in Boston) with a very serious heart problem. He's currently attached to an external heart pump, which bypasses the left ventricle, and will allow the heart tissue to be immobilized so it can heal. He's under deep sedation for at least two days.
If any of you would like to send him good wishes, please visit this site and leave a message for him in the Guestbook: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/johnlparker
We're all just waiting and hoping for the best.
