ADC posted this update over on Alien Legacy last night.

QuoteHi everyone.
Visited Trevor today with Alison. He's in the Critical Care Unit and is still out after being put into induced coma. He is on machine assisted breathing. It is a more serious stroke than (nearly) two years ago.
The stroke was on the left side this time. It is more serious when it occurs on the left side of the body for various reasons, mainly the impact it has on the brain.
He suffered multiple seizures today and they decided to put him under sedation again as a result.
They will hopefully take him out of that in the morning and then they can see if he's be stable enough to wake up.
For a bit we could see him fighting to come out of it, earlier today when he was off sedation and before the seizures. We all know he'll fight this thing. I want to stress that it's a far more serious attack than last time. I'm just saying this so that people can gauge the situation. Now we just have to wait.
There's an old saying from the First World War, 'Everyone is a believer in the trenches". Trevor is in the trenches right now. So whatever you believe, or even if you're not a believer, let us all say a prayer for our Trevor and his family tonight.
I'll report back here with any updates but Alison will post info on Facebook first so if you're friends with her on Facebook keep an eye on her page. Thanks.

Hopefully he'll pull through!

That does not sound good at all. Hope and prayers to his family that he can pull through and recover.

I am absolutely gutted. I had the pleasure of meeting him several times and we even had him on the podcast back in the early days. Trevor was an absolute gent of a man. He absolutely loved his fans. I'm so sad to wake up to this news. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.   :'(

That is so tragic. We've lost another. I never had the pleasure of meeting him. RIP Mr. Steedman. God bless you. It really pains me to hear how involved he was with the community, he really enjoyed meeting the fans and being a part of the fandom.

Hey NECA toys, if you're reading this, I think we need to get a commemorative Wierzbowski figure with some of the proceeds going to his family.

Wierzbowski! WIERZBOWSKI! :(

I always thought Hicks said, "Where's Baski?"

RIP, Tevor! :(
