Which is truly excellent news.
According to Chi Cheng’s mother, the Deftones bassist may soon be released from the intensive care unit.
“The last few days I have been preparing for the worst,” says Chi’s mom.
“Sepsis is serious and they tried two straight days to ween Chi off the ventilator but he could not breathe on his own and they had to put the machine back on,” she explains.
“Today we went in and he was off the machine and his vitals were stable,” she adds. “They want to keep him for another day or so in ICU and hope to move him out of the ICU and then HOME. I didn’t think he could come back from this one but the Beast is back.”
Fucking A, that’s awesome. So glad that Chi refuses to give up.
“Sal read him all of your messages today, We thank you SO MUCH for all your support and prayers. They seem to have carried him through this very scary time. I can’t tell you how your support is appreciated! Thank you with all our hearts! Blessings back to all of you, our wonderful family!”
Chi has not been the same since a 2008 car accident, which has left him in a semi-conscious state.
