As you might recall, in an earlier story [soylentnews.org] we noted that SoylentNews' Editor-in-Chief, janrinok, was scheduled for a medical procedure.
I have just received word that there were some (not totally unanticipated, but thought to be a very unlikely) complications and the expected 3 day hospital stay has now lasted over a week. In his own words:

I am torn in revealing personal details that were shared with me, and wish to not sound overly alarmist. I'll just leave here that I am reminded of a saying by Ralph Waldo Emerson [goodreads.com] “You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.”
JR has tirelessly (and tiredly, too) gone over and above in support of this site -- please keep him in your thoughts and, if you are of a mind to, your prayers. --martyb
