Update From Momma J ❤


hi Gina! let me send you a quick blog to our lovely onelove family,

Mae has been staying with Chi for most of the time since Chi went into ICU on Thursday. Today when Sal and I went
in to see him, he looked better than we had expected. He was quite aware of what was going on. He is still on life support and not enjoying the tube down his throat.

He did respond to us and they are going to try to ween him off the breathing machine tomorrow. When they tried today he did not do well but he has been on it before and gotten off without incident.

He is sedated part of the time but knows that he is near home and we are waiting to get him back to the house. He knows that we are there. Sal read him all of the comments that were sent to him and he knows that there are so many people sending
prayers and love.

Sal took a few pics for me to share with you. He is quite intensely listening to what I say and responds in different small but
deliberate ways. He knows that we are waiting for him.

Thank you all again for the prayers and support! He wanted so much to be home and you all brought him home to California and to his family. We are so grateful! Please keep him lifted in prayer. Blessings to you all family!

    I had the pleasure of meeting Chi on three separate occasions in Minneapolis. All of them were positive, as Chi showed appreciation, professionalism, and class towards all his fans – something not all musicians do.

    I am continuing to keep Chi and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Hang in there.


  2. I love hearing about his responses, no matter how small they may seem to someone on the outside of the the situation. Please tell Chi there are people all the way from Alberta, Canada sending him so much love and so many prayers. We hope he gets better soon, and is always in our thoughts. HUGE thanks also go to everyone taking care of him too, as he wouldn’t be doing as well as he is without you guys, of course.
    One love!! Stephanie and Sean Thomas <3

    Dear Brother, I know you’re fighting hard and I know you’ve been down this road many times. I’m assured thru prayer that God is with you and working thru you. So many people love you and want you here with us! I feel you’ve reached that turning point and you’ll be back at home in Cali soon enough. Just know that we love you and your family and we wait for as long as it takes. You have a purpose, sweet Dai!

  18. Excellent! I’m still praying and believing! Make sure someone is playing his favorite music all the time! And bring him animals he loves…like if he;s a dog person or a cat person! Music and animals are groovy ways of healing :)
