"Juan continues to make amazing progress - he is now talking a lot, recognizes all of his family and friends, has regained movement in his left side (which wasn't moving spontaneously at all up until one week ago), got his neck brace removed (he HATED it) and his trach removed so he's starting to eat very soft food and drink water (and is asking about yakitori and sushi!)! His long term memory is really good; his short term memory is something that will require work and - most importantly - time. His friend Ronnie bought a Jamaaladeen Tacuma @tacumasong record and showed Juan the album art, and Juan identified it immediately (this is a pic of him and Jamaaladeen Tacuma from last year). He can stand up with assistance and will start the road to walking again; he's doing so well we are all just so hopeful he'll be doing that sooner than later. I'm hoping he'll get to a point in the next few weeks where he can post these updates himself, if he feels up to it. As always, the love and support you've all shared is VITAL to his recovery so thank you for being such a huge part of it as he continues on this journey. Thank you!"

Did Marilyn cancelled all his gigs because of Juan or because it was opening for Ozzy?

It's a miracle given the odds that he would even be out of a completely vegetative state, now to fully being conscious, responsive, w memory intact and walking. Wow. So happy for him and his family

I was so negative when this thing happened to Juan, so happy to see that is going well little by little.

Weird thought, but at least he's missing out on the whole corona thing. Once he wakes up he'll be filled in. It'll be a hard thing to grasp, to believe even, maybe

Jesus, I was checking in on the comatorium as I do every few months and the subject title made my heart sink. Thankfully, I caught up and was delighted to see that Juan's making great progress. Of course I chipped in financially, Juan's contributed to some of my most cherished music. He's....family. I wouldn't have known about it had it not been for the coma. Thank you all! <3

I really hope Juan continues to get better and get back to all the things he loves.

 

I wonder if his accident will lead to him and Omar talking again...

 

I'm kind of curious what happened between them that in all Mars Volta reuinion talks Juan was never mentioned and also he himself said that he wouldn't be a part of it, which also would include the various Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group projects, I guess.

 

Juan is just my all time favourite bass player and I'd really love to see him play music again and especially with Omar!

Omar felt like he was talking behind his back and spreading false news. While Juan was hurt that Omar didn’t invite him to be a part of Bosnian Rainbows. As far as we know.
