How Roger's doing

Best wishes from columnist Mark Caro of the Chicago Tribune.

Roger Ebert's wife Chaz issued this statement about his condition:

I am happy to report that Roger is in stable condition and is improving each day. He has an excellent medical team led by Doctors Harold Pelzer, Neil Fine and Robert Havey, and they are optimistic about his recovery. We have every confidence in their abilities.

Medical issues aside, I am asking you to pray for Roger during his period of recovery and to visualize him being enveloped in healing light.

Roger would also want you to go out to the movies. He gives you permission to see even those movies that don't have his personal "Thumbs Up."

Thank you for your kind thoughts, words and prayers.

-- Chaz Ebert
