As many of you know, Trevor was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in 2005. Due to a flare-up of the disease, Trevor had to miss Fantasycon this year. As his condition did not respond to treatment, he had his large intestine removed early in October. This operation was followed by six weeks' recovery at home, but as you'll see from the following email from Trevor's wife Sandra (received today), he's not out of the woods yet.

Midnight Street is temporarily on hold. As some of you may know, I am the magazine's assistant editor. The last batch of stories that Trevor passed on to me to read dated from late May/early June. If you have submitted a story, particularly after that date, and haven't heard back, please do be patient - we'll be back on track as soon as possible.

I hope you will join me in wishing Trevor a speedy recovery, and all the best to him, Sandra, their children and granddaughter at this time.

Dear All

Thank you for the get well messages you have sent Trevor. He is very
appreciative and desperate to get back to fitness.

He has certainly been through a tough time and I am sorry to say is
still/back in hospital. The bowel operation he had was very successful and
he immediately felt better after the operation. Unfortunately, as so often
happens, there have been further complications and setbacks.......
First he developed blood clots and infection in his lungs which meant a
further two weeks in hospital on anti-biotics and the beginning of a course
of Warfarin to thin the blood. He then came home on 22nd October - still
weak but on road to recovery.
However, on Thursday evening (25th) he got excruciating pain in his back and
ended up in an ambulance back to A&E - diagnosed as a kidney stone. The pain
is supposed to be the nearest thing to child birth that men experience - but
with no baby at the end of it! After copious amounts of gas and air and
morphine - the kidney stone passed on its way by Saturday.
Trevor really thought he would be coming home again on Monday but was still
having some shortness of breath and racing pulse and high temperature at
times. Doctors have now diagnosed a fungal infection of the blood and
urine - potentially serious without treatment so he is currently on daily
intravenous doses of anti-biotic for the next two weeks.
Fingers crossed that once this is sorted he will be home again - it has been
a very long haul.

In view of the above, Midnight Street is on hold for the time being, but
Trevor is keen to let everyone know that he will back in business as soon as
possible.

Please pass on message to all others who know Trevor - and Gary can you put
info on Weirdmonger to advise as many as possible (Trevor is happy for all
above info to be circulated)

All best regards

Sandra

An update from Trevor, received today...

Hi everyone.

I've been out of hospital for a week (after a two month period in hospital!)
I had lots of complications in my lungs and chest, following the operation
on my bowel. I'm still very much in the recovery stage, but am so pleased to
be back in the real world again! It makes you realise just how precious
every little thing is and that your health is the number one priority, above
all else.

I want to say a big thankyou to all the people who offered their thoughts,
concerns and good wishes. I so appreciated it during some very dark times
indeed.

(...)

To update you on Midnight Street # 10. This will be published in January.
Delay due to the above! I'll update the website as soon as I can.

(...)

Once again, many thanks to you all. It's great to be part of a community of
people who care so much.

Trevor

My wife is right about me after all. I walk around with blinkers on and see only what I want to see. Only just seen this note about Trevor and I had a nice chat with him at a BFS evening earlier in the year. Glad to hear he's making a good recovery.
