Your Thoughts and Prayers Requested!

I learned today that the venerable Carl Norman, Executive Producer at Ubi Soft Entertainment, will be undergoing open heart surgery tomorrow.

I spoke to Carl today and can report that although he sounded a bit nervous, he's an ex-Marine and he's prepared to suck it up.

Gail and I would like you all to join with us in sending Carl our thoughts and prayers for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery!

Carl will be undergoing triple bypass surgery at the Marin General Hospital in Greenbrae, California.

Carl Norman is best known in the combat simulations community for the Strategic Simulations, Inc. (SSI) series of Flanker jet combat simulations. (Note: I'll keep you all posted as to Carl's progress; we should also have his hospital room number by tomorrow so we can send him those get well cards).

Update!

Carl just contacted me and tells me he won't be going under the knife until Friday now. (Probably been bumped by some ungrateful celeb, no doubt ). He also tells me there's no such thing as an ex-marine, just former marines

Update!

Color me amazed! Carl Norman actually called me from ICU on Sunday, just two days after his quintuple bypass.

Aside from the obvious post-operative discomfort he told me he feels fantastic.

I kidded Carl and told him that the new, animating sensation he was feeling for the first time in several years was created by oxygen-laden blood actually getting to his brain and body.

Carl still hasn't been moved to a room in the regular ward, but when he has, I'll provide another update.
