Deftones bassist Chi Cheng is back in intensive care after being diagnosed with pneumonia. Back in November 2008, Chi Cheng was hospitalized after being involved in a serious car accident.
In May 2009, Chi Cheng was able to breath by himself, but since then it has been a slow road to recovery. There have been several benefit shows since 2008 in order to help pay for the rising hospital bills Chi Cheng‘s family are facing. More at http://oneloveforchi.com.
He did respond to us and they are going to try to ween him off the breathing machine tomorrow. When they tried today he did not do well but he has been on it before and gotten off without incident.
He is sedated part of the time but knows that he is near home and we are waiting to get him back to the house. He knows that we are there. Sal read him all of the comments that were sent to him and he knows that there are so many people sending
prayers and love.
Sal took a few pics for me to share with you. He is quite intensely listening to what I say and responds in different small but
deliberate ways. He knows that we are waiting for him.
Thank you all again for the prayers and support! He wanted so much to be home and you all brought him home to California and to his family. We are so grateful! Please keep him lifted in prayer. Blessings to you all family!
