Just wanted to give you guys a quick update on Sonitan – who most of you know as a vocal, witty and beloved member of our community – since many of you have been asking about her condition during her absence from the site over the past few weeks. I’ve corresponded with her mother, who has been extraordinarily kind in answering my emails in what must be a very trying time. Here’s what she’s told me so far:

Sonitan’s been in an Intensive Care Unit since February 12 due to pneumonia with complications because of her diabetes. She’s very tired because of all the medication she’s on, and her situation’s very serious, but speaks often about the friends she has here and didn’t want us to think she’d abandoned us.

I’ve asked Sonitan’s mom to let our favorite Puerto Rican goth know that we’re aware of her situation and are sending healing vibes and positive thoughts her way, and that we’re all pulling for her to get better as quickly as possible so we can hear her *diabolical laugh of doom* again, soon.

Keep Sonitan and her family in your thoughts. I’m planning on sending flowers when she gets out of the ICU, so if you’d like to have your name on the card let me know. I’ll update this post if I hear anything new, but hopefully, Sonitan will be feeling better soon and can update us herself!
