I have what follows from David Langford's Ansible 202, by way of Lisa Tuttle:
ANDRE NORTON fell and badly broke her hip on 8 April, underwent surgery on the 10th (involving screws and a metal plate), and was able to return home on the 14th. A full recovery is hoped for. No gifts or foodstuffs, please, but her fans suggest that a small contribution to medical bills wouldn't come amiss: checks to Ms Andre Norton, c/o her carer Sue Stewart, 1007 Herron St, Murfreesboro, TN 37130, USA. The Norton house and much property will be sold by auction on 5 June, at the house: 114 Eventide Dr, Murfreesboro, TN 37130, USA. Sue Stewart writes: "There will be custom made jewelry ... fantasy/sci-fi art work. Several pieces of antique glassware ... Even her personal computer will be sold." Andre Norton will be living at 1007 Herron St from mid-May.

Jayme Blaschke of Revolution SF writes:
I heard through the SFWA lists that the person distributing this "call for donations" did it without Ms. Norton's permission. People close to her have said she wants to keep a low profile during her recovery, and is uncomfortable with the prospect of donations or even get well cards from strangers.
Just what I've heard. I don't think we'll be publicizing this on RevSF unless Ms. Norton changes her desires.
But thanks for the notice.

Sorry, everyone. Lisa and I didn't know.
