Well, I’m nearly finished with my Shameless Lion award post, but came across this bit of news that I felt the need to print. My favorite living author, Terry Pratchett, has been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers. Here is his statement which he says should be interpreted as “I am not dead”.
I’m not one to really post negative news in the gossipy way some people do, saying “Look at me, I’ve got this terrible news to tell everyone.” I simply know a few of you are Pratchett fans and might want to know about this.
My hope for him is that this is a slow moving form of Alzheimers and that he has as many quality years left as possible. I could not fathom what he and his family must be going through right now.
