Andre Norton hospitalized

As if news of Jack Chalker's untimely demise wasn't bad enough, now word comes to me via SFWA channels that Andre Norton, a veritable cornerstone of modern day science fiction and fantasy, has been hospitalized with what is obviously a serious condition. This news is most unwelcome:
I'm sorry to report that Andre Norton is in the hospital, with the flu AND pneumonia. Since she'll be 93 this Thursday, this development is very serious. At the moment, she's in ICU.

Cards and notes would be much appreciated. Andre's address is:

Andre Norton
1007 Herron Street
Murfreesboro, TN 37130

If anyone is thinking of sending flowers, Sue suggests that potted plants that can be replanted outside might be a good choice, since it's almost spring. Andre has a lovely little garden right outside the glass doors in her bedroom and she loves her garden.

Healing thoughts and prayers would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

-Ann C. Crispin
