As of this writing, Dave is still with us. We have moved him into a facility where we can focus on keeping him comfortable. We have been and will continue to watch the forums and blogs and are passing along everyone's thoughts and prayers. Right now our focus is on getting Dave into the best possible position to maintain his comfort and his dignity. We will update the community as we can. We want to thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers and ask that you continue to send Dave your support in whatever form that means to you.The family has asked that all of us who care about Dave wait patiently for news from them, as they are the only wholly reliable source of information. Given the misinformation to which I contributed today, I think that's a very sensible policy and one by which I'll happily abide.

My thanks to his family for contacting me directly and for being very understanding about the mess I contributed to. I still feel very bad about it.
