I got a brief note from Daryl Brand, Bill’s wife, who let me know this morning that the doctors have told her that Bill is in stable condition, which is very good news. She’s promised to post updates on Bill’s Facebook page as she learns more.
Let’s all continue to send our best wishes and prayers for Bill’s recovery.
UPDATE: Found out the following from a reporter friend (thanks again, Brent) who heard back from a colleague at the Contra Costa Times. Bill has apparently had surgery to relieve pressure in his brain. He has a broken bone in his neck but no others were broken. His lungs are struggling, still somewhat critical I’m afraid, but he’s stable all the same.
