Deftones’ Chi Cheng Battling More Infections

Chi Cheng

Not a day goes by that I don’t stop to think about Chi Cheng and send him some good thoughts.

The Deftones bassist, as you well know, has been in and out of a coma since 2008, when he was involved in a terrible car accident.

Today, the One Love For Chi site was updated, asking for more prayers for Cheng.

“Chi is fighting off yet another [urinary tract] infection and pneumonia,” says the site. “Please keep him in your thoughts and send healing. I will update as I get news.”

Chi’s mother claims he is home, receiving good care, but needs positive thoughts as he continues his recovery.

“He is fighting a uti and today started antibiotics for pneumonia again,” she explains.
