Quoth Ryxander: "There is extremely bad news on the Tia front. This is about as bad as it gets. I am just going to say the facts.
"Tia's heart stopped & breathing stopped. They tried for about 15 minutes to resuscitate her, and got her heart beating again, but she's on life support -- a machine is breathing for her. She is completely unresponsive with fixed pupils. They don't know how long her brain was without oxygen, and thus don't know if she is... I can't think of a good word. Alive."
From me: I was with Jet when she got the news. moonpuppy61 was also there and drove her to the hospital, where he is with her. I contacted lensman and roaming and they will be there as soon as they can (they weren't in the area). Whitney is en route. ryxander is en route. Jet also called Tia's sister and told her to drop everything and come to Boston. If you need info, try Ryxander, Moonpuppy61 or Whitney if you have their numbers.
I'm taking care of neo_blackwolf, who is bottling his emotions to some extent. He's my job. We'll be handling the pets for the night as well.
You can call me if you have my number, but I don't have any more info than above as of yet. Someone on-site is a better bet.
