Your Excellency,

On behalf of the bardic community, I apologize for not getting this on the 
main Ansteorran list earlier. It appears to have been a miscommunication - 
everyone thought someone else had already posted it, or was taking care of 
it. I know that Wormy appreciates the concern and prayers of his friends 

Speaking only for myself, however, I would like to request, with all due 
respect, that you not post to this list in anger regarding the delay in 
getting the word out about Wormy. While I certainly understand your 
feelings, I would like to point out that HL Elanor O'Ruarc and her Lord 
Matthias are the main sources of information for all of us regarding Wormy 
right now, and as they truly consider him one of the family, this has been 
very hard on them. I really would not want them to see a posting saying 
that they weren't getting the word out enough, considering everything 
they're going through.

Incidentally, when Wormy went into the hospital, he was not considered to 
be in nearly so serious a condition, and was even starting to improve. I 
may be wrong, but I don't think even his immediate family knew when he 
first entered the hospital.

Please know that we will try to keep the rest of the kingdom informed of 
developments, but please also know that we don't always know the latest
