Friday AM: Cartoonist Ty Templeton Critical But Stable After Yesterday’s Heart Attack
Brigid Alverson has her usual smart write-up here on Ty Templeton's condition and what people can do for the family. The cartoonist is in an induced coma and the family is waiting for his situation to stabilize. I was in the same place about four years ago; it's serious, but there's no certainty to the narrative from this point on although I would imagine everyone is hopeful and the idea that they're going to take him off as early as today is a good sign.
By the way, that's simply the best information I have going into the afternoon. I imagine there will be updates at the facebook account as necessitated by events.
