So an old colleague of mine is in the hospital.  He is an amazing scientist and is a legend in the drug addiction field. He helped me throughout my graduate career and even helped me find my current postdoc.  I cannot fathom the number of young scientists he has mentored or influenced.  He is truly a wonderful person.

Right now he is in ICU, following surgery to repair a tear in his GI tract.  The prognosis isn't bad, but I know he and his family would appreciative prayers for a speedy recovery. 

I know I especially would appreciate it too.

I'm so sorry to hear this. He sounds like he was a really great man.

I hope he stays strong and makes a speedy recovery so he is able to continue to mentor and teach.
