John Kettler Is In The Hospital!

 

ATTENTION EVERYONE!

John has been going through a very stressful, complicated and unexpected move. He was just settling into his new place when he had a slip and fall accident. He hit is head very hard. Being the typical guy, he didn’t want to go to the doctor but fortunately, friends convinced him to call 911. It’s good they did, because it turns out he did some real damage to himself. John has bleeding on the brain and presumably a concussion of some kind.

Right now he is in the ICU. At least some of his family members are with him. The report I just got is that he is stable, but that’s all I know. Until I talk to John or his family, we will not release any info about where he is hospitalized, his specific condition or prognosis.

Please think good thoughts, send your prayers and good wishes, and watch this post for updates. Sunfire and I will add more when we know more.

UPDATE 6:00 P.M. PST: I spoke with John’s brother a while ago. The prognosis as far as can be determined at this point is good. No serious damage, but full test results come back tomorrow. John is resting and seems to be doing a bit better. Keep those good thoughts, vibes and prayers coming, everybody! It means the world to John!!!

UPDATE 4:00 P.M. PST (Tuesday): Just got off the phone with John. His voice was strong, all things considered. He is still in the ICU, but he is doing much better. The doc’s think he can leave tomorrow, but we won’t know for sure till then. He wanted everybody to know how much he appreciates all the kind thoughts, comments and good wishes. Keep ’em coming! 🙂

It turns out he had a sort-of “out of body” experience in the hours after hitting his head, which explains (in part) why he didn’t immediately get himself looked at. He was in quite an altered state of consciousness. Perhaps John will describe it in a post. Special thanks to Gwen for insisting he call 911 and get himself checked out.

I’ll report more as it develops, but hopefully we’ll all hear from the man himself in the next 24-48 hours.

 UPDATE 2:45 P.M. PST (Wednesday): Good news! John was released from the hospital today. He is back at his new place (scene of the accident, so to speak) and resting. He sounded good but very tired and a bit medicated. I encouraged him to take it easy.

The prognosis appears to be good. The injury was bad but not bad enough they had to crack his head open. It’s amazing how much damage you can do to yourself when you really try. He is already talking about new projects, so that is a good sign.

John indicated he will try and get back in the swing of things tomorrow. He was scheduled for a radio appearance then, but we’ll see if it comes off. It depends on how he feels in the morning. Once again, he expressed thanks to everybody for all the love and support, as do Sunfire and myself.

NOTE: I characterized John’s accident as “slip and fall,” which isn’t exactly right. What actually happened was more like “stumble and slam” or something like that. I’m sure John will  regale us with the details eventually.


SHARE IT!

CAN YOU GIVE $1 PER MONTH?

If you value what John is doing here in his quest to get to the hidden, suppressed truth and share it with you, PLEASE DONATE – help keep us going!


John is on disability and our webmaster donates his time, but we do have real overhead costs.


Even a $1 per month donation would help – especially if enough people did it. We survive (if you can call it that) on donations to this point. Could you pledge a buck to help out?


I'M IN - I WILL HELP!
