Finalmente arriva un aggiornamento sulle condizioni di Dan Treacy, storico leader e figura cardine dei Television Personalities, ricoverato a fine ottobre scorso in un ospedale britannico a causa di un’emorragia cerebrale e quindi sottoposto ad un intervento d’urgenza per rimuovere un coagulo di sangue. L’artista che conseguentemente era caduto in coma, rimane ricoverato ma avrebbe fortunatamente riacquistato conoscenza come conferma la sorella Patricia attraverso il profilo facebook:

Daniel is just getting over another nasty chest infection, and still has a tracky fitted to help with his breathing and to make it easier for the nurses to clear his lungs. Daniel is allowed to have a speaking valve fitted to the tracky for 2 hours a day to enable him to speak any longer than this, and he cannot breathe very well. He has a gastric nasal tube fitted to feed him through, but he pulls them out every day as many as four times, but he doesn’t realise he has done it. He is moving his right arm and leg, but has no real co-ordernation. His left hand moves a little, but he has no feeling in his left side at the moment. There is lots more i could go into, but I think this is enough for now, just to let everyone who has asked after Daniel know that things are not very good, but are much better than we ever we thought, as Daniel was not expected to survive, but has even surprised his Neuro Surgeon getting this far. We are looking at 6 to 12 months in hospital for Daniel — he has no concept of time or days of the week. PLEASE PLEASE KEEP PRAYING. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR KIND WORDS. MUCH LOVE PATRICIA X

  1. Spero di poter un giorno incontrare Dio, anche solo 10 secondi, per dirgli in faccia cosa penso di lui. Ma queste cose non capitano mai a gente tipo Sting o Ramazzotti?!? Perchè il destino si accanisce sui più deboli e miti mentre Andreotti fra poche settimane compie 92 anni? etc etc.
    Good luck Dan, non penso ti rivedrò mai più su un palco – d’altronde pure prima non è che te la passassi proprio bene – ma spero che il prossimo Natale lo passi sorseggiando un buon whisky…
