From Alex Pournelle, Dr. Pournelle's son:

"Jerry had a small stroke. He is recovering well at a local hospital. Prognosis is good, though they're running more tests and he's expected to stay at least another day or two.

"He felt well enough to call Mom [Mrs. Pournelle] from the hospital.

"Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. More updates when we have them."
