Rumor : Deftones Bassist Chi Cheng Comes Out Of Coma
Some of you may have come across an article that is stating “Deftones Bassist Chi Cheng Comes Out Of Coma” I have emailed these guys to ask them to please correct themselves… Obviously they misunderstood. Chi is in more of a semi-conscious state.. So technically not in a “coma” (with a coma there is no wakefulness) since he started tracking with eyes and saying words. Sometimes they label it as a ‘vegetative state’ or ‘minimally conscious state’ but those in a ‘vegetative state’ do not talk or track with eyes or do things on request like Chi has. So I believe it is more of a ‘minimally conscious state’ or ‘semi-conscious state’ he is in. So basically he is “in and out” … But fully awake awake? No.. Believe me.. You would have heard this from me RIGHT away!!!!! And my husband and I would be on our way to Cali with kids in tow!
He is still opening his eyes and tracking.. But he is super tired after this ICU/infection ordeal…
So.. Keep up the good thoughts/prayers. He should be starting the oxygen therapy hopefully Saturday or Sunday.
One love for chi,
