My thoughts are with Nathaniel Mayer who recently had a stroke.
I picked up this message from the Dark End Of The Street forum:
Nathaniel is still in the hospital, slowly recovering from the stroke. His right side and speech have been affected. He is more alert now, and though speech and movement are difficult for him at the moment, the slight improvements he's made are encouraging. The X-rays reveal that the damage from the stroke was limited to a small area, so the doctors think a considerable recovery is possible. Nate is aware of the many messages he's recieved here. Knowing how much everyone cares about him is giving him strength. Also, listening to lots of James Brown on the CD player is doing him good. We will keep posting information here.
Take care Nathaniel and get well soon.
