Yakov's health

Yakov suffered a series of transient ischemic attacks or "mini-strokes" this past week. He is doing better than could otherwise be expected under these circumstances, but he is very weak and disoriented. As it was explained to us, these occured because his pulse went above 180 beats per minute. If the medical system in this country were worth a damn, they'd already have outfitted him with valve replacements and a pacemaker. So much for the much hoped for great health reform Mr. Obama promised. We hope you will continue to remember him in your prayers.

Yakov, you are in my thoughts often, and I am praying for the day when your doctors can finally help you in the way you need. I owe so much to you and consider you one of my great friends. Please take care of yourself and know that I am praying for a speedy recovery from this latest setback. I can't imagine how frustrating this has been for you, but I know that it has weighed on you heavily. Please remember that you are a friend to so many and we need you to be strong and crass and everything that makes you, you. Take care buddy, you are in my prayers!
