News Flash: James Randi Undergoes Heart Surgery

James “The Amazing” Randi

We wish we had more information but here’s what we know now about James Randi’s condition. 

We spoke with the James Randi Educational Foundation (“JREF”) today.  “His condition is still stable,” the representative said.  The doctors believe he will have a “full but not quick recovery” following the surgery. 

The JREF posted the following notice on their web site yesterday.

We will follow up on the story as more information becomes available.  The Randi family is in our prayers.

Special announcement      February 6th, 2006

James
Randi underwent bypass surgery last Thursday. He is currently in stable
condition. He is receiving excellent care, but will
need quiet time to recover. We will release more information as it
becomes available, and we ask everyone to please respect the family’s
wishes
for privacy at this time.

For those who feel a need to help, please consider donating blood at your local Red Cross or Community Blood Center. Cards
may be sent to Randi in care of JREF, 201 SE 12 Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316.

A posting in the weekly commentary site dated February 3rd noted Mr. Randi was taking some time off.

Mr. Randi is taking a well deserved break this week,
and he asked me to organize the commentary for him.

He’ll be back with his regularly-scheduled words of wisdom soon.
