For those that did not know Commonmass experienced an event presumed to be a stroke this last week. He drove himself to the hospital and was diagnosed. He has been given medication and a prescription for intake changes.

According to his brother fellow Kossack TheIsleOfMan he has been resting all day and is a bit cranky, which is to be expected due not only his medical stress but having to deal with outside issues the medical issues have placed him in. His father is staying with him and monitoring his care.

SaraR has asked to do a fundraiser for Commonmass but it may now be possible for Commonmass to receive state based insurance due to this new diagnosis. We will wait until we know more before we take that step.

I thank all of you for your concern and words of support.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
