Thanks to Lucas Siegel at Blog@Newsarama 2.0 for bringing attention to an update that Carla’s brother, Jason McComb posted earlier today in the Blog@’s comments section.
I am Carla’s brother. I live in South San Francisco and commute to Orange, CA where the UCI Burn Center is. I just got back from visiting them yesterday, and I am happy to report that they are both out of danger and have begun the hard tasks of rehabilitation from both the smoke inhalation and burns. Burns require daily cleaning and the ‘hydrotherapy’ is taxing and painful. Carla is able to talk and is walking a little, and we hope that Lance is not far behind.
Fortunately, UCI is a top facility and even the nursing staff has decades of burn treatment experience. As far as bad situations go, its the best it can be right now.
So, at this time, anything that can be done to keep their morale up is vastly important. I have been out the comic world since high school (I am 42) so any help from the blogsphere would be most appreciated. Anyone know Stan Lee’s unlisted phone number?
Carla has asked for updates on the following:
Dark Reign (Rain?)
The two new Thor books with Matt Fraction
Man of War
God Sized Thor . . .
Jason went on to offer his email address for people to send him information. Please follow the link if you want to get Jason’s email address. But Lucas actually advises a better way to get info to Jason in his post:
So, folks, what I’d ask is this- Let’s flood this comments section with well wishes and updates on Carla’s favorite books. We’ll then send Jason the link for a nice, easy single place to check (and his email won’t be flooded) . . . So sound off below, and please, keep any negative thoughts on these books to yourselves in this case, k?
Thanks again to Lucas for bringing attention to the update, as well as Blog@ 2.0’s continued support of the auction efforts.
