Chi Cheng (Deftones) Improving Following Pneumonia Diagnosis

Chi Cheng 2012

There has been a lot of doubt and worry surrounding the pneumonia diagnosis of Deftones’ Chi Cheng but he is recently showing signs of improvement / consciousness in the ICU.

Cheng has been assisted with a breathing machine for a while and slowly the doctors will start weaning him off the machine (as soon as today). We can only pray for the best in this scenario and hope the family stays strong in the continued rough time. Read a message from the family below and a recent picture of Chi Cheng.

“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!

-Mom J and the Cheng gang”
