juan appears to be answering commands sometimes, sounds like he's progressing even more

 

Omar can work with him only if he's answering commands ALL the time. ha

 

 

hope the poor guy is reasonably insured at least...

Cedric and omar are class traitors

Why is that?
mostly a joke but not paying the dude enough/having an insecure enough contract that he needs a day job despite their left wing preaching

I think the implication for Juan was that he wasn't confident he'd keep the job, not that he was being underpaid. He kept the day job because he figured the band could be torn out from under him at any moment. So's my reading, anyway.

This sounds so much more hopeful than it seemed when I first read about it, I'm glad.

He's a musician

So most likely not.

Nick Reinhart posts about how much it sucks getting healthcare as a musician.

Prime example of why our healthcare system is fucked.

that's what I was worrying about. 

I know it's "just money" and him getting well is much more important right now.

But recovering to tens of thousands of dollars of debt, loosing you house etc.. Man, ain't no picknick.

Update was posted a couple weeks ago to the gofundme, thought I'd share:

 

 

 

Hi everyone. I wanted to share an update on Juan along with one of my favorite photos of him, sitting in our guest room playing with pedals (where's Nick?!). Starting a couple of days ago, he has very intermittently started following commands. I asked him if he was in pain, and he shook his head no. I asked him if he was worried, and he shook his head yes. I asked him if he missed Sophie and Gigi (our cats) and he shook his head no (they're going to be BUMMED!). He's nodded to a couple of other questions from his mom as well. It's not consistent - for example, 10 minutes later, he won't respond at all or he will only respond 2 - 3 times a day. But it is clear when he does. This is such a promising sign, and hopefully just one of many more to come. It is going to be a very long road...it's difficult to know at this stage what Juan understands, if he knows what happened...there are so many unanswered questions. We appreciate your continued support and ask humbly to please keep sharing the GoFundMe page (link in profile) since unfortunately the road to recovery in the U.S. is one that requires a lot of funds. And to those who have apologized because you can't donate, please - PLEASE don't feel the need to be sorry at all! Your love and messages of support (and the #playforJuan videos!) are AS healing and helpful.

Still hard to believe all this is happening. At least the donations seem to be flowing in to cover what I imagine are immense medical costs.

Oh, this sounds like pretty good news! Such a better prognosis than I was dreading.

I worked at an alzheimers home when I was younger. Some of the residents were so gone they couldn't form a sentence or recognize you even existed. Put them in front of a piano and they could play a beautiful, complicated piece flawlessly from start to finish. Life is a trip.

Maybe Omar should release the Vato Negro album, with all money going to Juan’s recovery?

He's probably re-recorded the bass parts already.
