Early Wednesday morning friends and fans were shocked to learn that Canadian Comic Book Creator Hall of Fame member TY TEMPLETON was in hospital following a heart attack. His wife, Keiren Templeton-Smith, sent out the following update yesterday.
I don’t have Ty’s way with words or images so I can’t cushion this news within a funny Bun Toon, but Ty is currently hospitalized after having suffered a heart attack. I’m sorry to tell everyone in a Facebook post but it seemed the easiest way to reach everyone who might need to know. Email me if it’s important but at this time, our family is concentrating on Ty.
In the early hours of Thursday, April 16 she sent out another update:
Ty is still in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator. The plan is to take him off both the sedatives and the ventilator tomorrow. If you wish to send Ty a message you can email him (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will make sure he sees them when he is able. He is in critical but stable condition. His location will change in the next few days depending on his condition.
Everyone here at the Canadian Comic Book Creator Awards Association wishes Ty a speedy recovery and are hoping for the best possible outcome. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ty and his family during this stressful time.
