Juan Alderete Recovery Update
Today we’re so happy to share a piece of good news. Three months after a terrible bike accident that left him in a coma, Juan Alderete’s wife Anne has shared a very promising update on the bassist’s condition. Alderete has started to be able to use his own phone, though Anne points out it will be a while before we hear from him directly.
“He is working on walking and is using a walker and some assistance, eating totally regular food all the time, doing three hours of therapies (OT, ST, PT) a day and making such great progress,” she writes in a post sharing a new photo of the couple. She also quizzed Juan to share more with his fans, including his favorite food at the rehab hospital (enchiladas and burritos), what he misses the most, and what he wants to play.
“Biggest realization during this process: Always be grateful for the people who put everything down for you. It’s taught me that you always have to be there for people and people will be there for you,” the post added. “Message to you all: Thanks so much for all of your concern -IT GIVES ME POWER! Thank you SO MUCH for ALL of your SUPPORT! [he asked me to use caps in this way to communicate his emotions to you!]”
We’re so happy for Juan’s recovery, and we can’t wait to hear him playing again!
