Hi folks – we’ve finalized the GoFundMe for pinkunz and his wife. If you’re able to donate, please help out an amazing family; if that’s not something you can do right now, sharing far and wide is really helpful too. They appreciate your support so much!

Whoops, thanks, I fixed the OP. I was linking back to the same post - I initially structured this a different way then decided to make a new post with the GFM link at the top for pinning/linking etc. Thanks for catching it.
I don’t use Mastodon much, but they are great about boosting throughout the gaming community, please boost if you’re a Mastodon participant!
Yeah, great point – I’ll tag @zarf and @VictorGijsbers since I know they’re big there. Also if folks have blogs, especially those that are linked on PlanetIF, that could help build visibility for people who aren’t checking things so regularly – I think that’s Zarf and @kamineko, maybe others?
Hi folks – got another update! The surgery yesterday went well, though he’s still in a lot of pain. But they’re going to be starting occupational therapy today and he’ll be discharged home once he’s able to walk with assistance; they expect the recovery to be 8-12 weeks.
Pinkunz told me he’s been reading everybody’s well wishes and appreciates it more than he can say – literally, since typing is very very hard for him with the pain-killers. But he and Heather both wanted me to pass along that they’re beyond touched with everything everybody is doing – donating, sharing, or offering words of comfort, it’s all deeply appreciated.
