Darren Rowse, Mr Problogger, has posted on his site about his recent illness, which apparently affected his eyesight. He asked how would a problogger cope with blindness.
One comment on the post, from his friend Tim reads thus :
I’m a friend of Darren’s and just wanted to let people know that he’s actualy quite sick. His wife took him to hospital today after he took a turn for the worse. I’ve heard he’s actually lost sight in one eye, has been having blackouts and is in a bad way. He’s been admitted and they are doing tests. I’m sure his family would appreciate your thoughts and prayers at this time.
So it seems a lot more serious than at first thought. I would like to wish Darren a speedy recovery. He’s a vital figurehead in the problogging community. I hope he’s picking this up on his RSS feed in his hospital bed, surrounded by grapes, his wife and his family.
Update: The latest news via Jeremy Wright, Darren’s colleague in b5media, is that he’s on the mend, after a well-earned rest. Great news.
