"Hi everyone - this is Anne, Juan's wife. While I generally hesitate to share personal details on social media, it felt right to include all of you who've supported Juan over the years as friends, fans, fellow music (and food, cat, bike, Japan) lovers and musicians.


Juan was in a solo (no cars, other people) and very serious bicycle accident on 1/13/20 not far from our home. He - as always - was wearing a helmet and protective clothing but sustained serious head trauma in the form of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI); his form of TBI is Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI) and as of today, he remains in a coma.
The only prognosis is to wait and see, as the brain is a complicated organ and the outcomes for DAI patients has a range as wide as the sea. While frustrating, it also allows for a world of positive outcomes so we can only hope for the best.
We know you have questions, concerns, thoughts to share, so please feel free to leave them in the comments (not DM please, sorry) here. We're also very eager to hear from neurologists, medical professionals with experience in DAI and TBI, first-person accounts of similar trauma and outcomes - essentially any useful, factual and accurate resources that relate to Juan's injury. If you have any of these, please DM me (Anne) @tunatoast.
We will post updates here from time to time. Thank you all and please keep Juan in your thoughts. - xo, Anne"

From Wiki about Diffuse axonal injury:

 

"The outcome is frequently coma, with over 90% of patients with severe DAI never regaining consciousness. Those who do wake up often remain significantly impaired."

 

:sad: :sad: :sad:

I'm a nurse that floats twice a week to an Ortho/Neuro floor. Chances of recovery are pretty grim when a patient is in a comatose state as a result of a TBI. None of the patients that I've been assigned to with TBIs have ever made a full recovery (So far). They either remain in a comatose state or awaken with all sorts of debilitating neurological deficits/paralysis. I'm very worried for Juan and his family  :sad:

Speechless, I love everything he touches. Nice and wise, talking with him was an experience for me. Today I was through his discography and I was in tears hearing him. I really love this man with my heart and damn, the heritage he give us is just miraculous. Get well soon Big Sir.

God, I really hope he makes a full recovery. Juan is such an amazing musician and I've never heard any fans say anything bad about him. He always struck me as such a nice guy
