Important News
On the Eighth of October (10/8/2020) we learned that Robotech Master was badly injured in a hit and run while out on his electric bike. The volunteer staff of Shifti all hope for him to recover and be back to his old self by Christmas, but right now he's known to have been badly injured and is in intensive care on a respirator. Please give his friends and family space and time to get through these trying times. All the information we currently have is in this TeleRead article.
Update One: According to a recent e-mail from Jon Sleeper there is no eye movement and he will not survive if taken off the respirator. He also reports that doctors are recommending end-of-life procedures to his brothers.
Update Two: News from his family says that they tested taking him off the respirator and he is breathing on his own. While this can be a good sign, it is still too early to tell if he'll ever recover or wake up.
Update Three: His mother reports that Chris has stopped breathing on his own and has been placed on Palliative Care. (note that Palliative Care assumes that recovery is possible, it is the other side of Hospice Care)
Final Update: According to this post and his mother, Chris died at around two in the morning. The pain I know we're all feeling right now is real, but hopefully it will leave us remembering all the good as things have in the past.
