    I usually don't start these threads and almost never on behalf of another, but I feel...prompted(?) or at least strongly enough that I need to post this one.

    For those of you who frequent the Survival Reading forum, you are probably aware of @ChrisNuttall. I have been reading his stuff before he had anything published and was posting on the critique forum at Baen Books. He posted in one of his threads that his health wasn't good and they thought it was either a really bad infection or possibly aggressive lymphoma and the tests should be back soon.

    Well, it turns out it was both. Chris is currently in the hospital and has had a drain in his lung while they try to clear up a resistant infection before he can start treatment for the lymphoma. Cancer is personal to me so maybe this is why I feel like I need to add his name to the prayer roll here, but whatever the reason, I am.

    Chris has brought a lot of enjoyment to a lot of people through his writing. Whether he knew it at the time or not (or even remembers), he was encouraging to me when I started writing and I for one hope he kicks this things ass. I hope I'm not alone in that.

    Prayers sent brother, stay strong!

    For those of you who Facebook - Christopher G. Nuttall

    For those of you who don't Facebook, that's the only place he's updated recently with the following:
    It’s aggressive lymphoma. Treatment starts today. Wish me luck

    Still in hospital with a chest infection that needs to go before treatment. Not in a good state. Thank you for all the good wishes

    09/05/18 (Proof Chris really is sick)
    September 18th (some good news for a change)
    (it's the announcement that "The Princess In The Tower" audio book is forthcoming)

    Still in hospital. The drain for my lung is supposed to be removed today, but it’s still full of crap. The infection is proving resistant, but the docs are hopeful. Thanks to everyone who prayed for me. I really appreciate it

    Update on Chris Nuttall (via Facebook):
    09/14/18 - 18:52 EST (6:52 PM EST)

    Started chemotherapy today. This is something of a calculated risk because the infection hasn’t gone, but it looks like the lymphoma is driving the infection. Please pray for me if you have a moment

    @DarkLight Is he still in Malaysia taking treatment or back in the UK?

    I believe he is in the UK at this point but I'm not positive. I'll see what I can find out though.

    Prayers for him. I really enjoy his stories and the way he develops alternative worlds. His writing skills and shear output place him in a very elite group.

    Well, I’m feeling considerably better after the first set of treatments, but I have a second on the way, probably at the end of the week. I’ll be in hospital for a bit longer, it seems. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers - I’ll reply to individual emails when I get home.

    Well, the second treatment is scheduled for tomorrow and, all going well, I can go home on Saturday. Been feeling a lot better so hopefully things will go well. Wish me luck.
