UPDATED. Glenn Greenwald needs our thoughts and prayers

One of the great champions of our key principles on the left has fallen ill.
Please send him your thoughts and/or prayers.

Last week, I wrote that I had a bad flu and likely wouldn't be writing for at least a few days. As it turns out, I don't have the flu, but rather dengue fever, combined with some still-unknown secondary problem. I'd strongly prefer not to write about this but I had to cancel the series of speeches I was to give this week at various California colleges and, after notifying them of the reason, at least one of the event sponsors disclosed my condition to those inquiring about the event, so it's already been posted by well-intentioned people in various places. Moreover, as Andrew Sullivan pointed out when writing about the illness that prevented him from blogging all last week, it's basically impossible to write everyday for years and then suddenly disappear without providing your readers with an explanation, as much as one might loathe writing about personal matters (as I do).

Mr. Greenwald posted an update today ...

"Good news: as a result of suddenly encouraging blood tests yesterday and then even better ones this morning, I've been declared in recovery and was released from the hospital this morning, having just arrived home -- exhausted but ecstatic. It'll take a few days or so for me to return to writing, but all the truly horrendous parts are over. Thanks to everyone for all the well-wishes; it really did help a lot, and they were truly appreciated."

Thank you for the good news

so good to hear.

Our prayers must have worked

Thanks for the update.

Wonderful to know that GG is recovering!

Can't wait for his next mighty jab for freeing Manning and Assange.

Gracias a Dios

I wish him a speedy recovery

Glenn Greenwald is a man of principal and a true AMERICAN patriot. He has earned my respect and I wish him well.

I'm sending all the my thoughts his way and Egypts way.

Can't wait to hear from him again. This man gets it and is a truly amazing reporter.

Whether you call it prayer,

meditation, sending good vibes or whatever else.... it works. There is more to us than our bodies. We are an energetic force in the Universe. We can send that energy in the directions we want to enhance healing in mind and body.

Lets all send some strong energy Glenn's way. He is truly a brave and wise and uncompromising freedom fighter.

Thank you so much for making this front page ...

Who ever did this.

Mr. Greenwald is a true champion of freedom.

He deserves our thoughts.

I wish him well.

He had better get himself

He had better get himself checked for traces of polonium.

Thinking and praying

I think he is indispensable.

How on earth did he get it?

How on earth did he get it? Was he traveling in Asia?

I've seen him do quite a few

I've seen him do quite a few interviews from Rio De Janeiro. I'm just guessing he has a second home there.

Columbus, Ohio

Nope ...

That is his first home.

If this happened in the U.S.

His partner would not have any rights to see him.

Or handle his affairs while he is ill.

That is why he lives where he lives.

Okay. First home, then.

Okay. First home, then.

Goodness, Antiwar.com Scott Horton just took a week off

with sickness, too.

Get well very very soon Glenn. Prayers and blessings to you and Scott. Keep those pesky mosquitoes way way away from you. . .

Critics of the government

seem to get mysterious maladies. i.e. Aaron Russo wasn't a textile dyer, but he got bladder cancer. Hmmm? Speedy recovery Glenn, we need you back.

Dengue fever??

Wow. Sending him thoughts of blue light and intense healing.
