I'm gutted. Have been rereading our chats on Facebook just now which lead to me booking Fotheringay as a Dutch exclusive for Roots aan de Zaan on 24 September, which happens to be his birthday. I met Jerry before at various Cropredies but if one thing is clear (from real life and these chats) is that you immediately kind of forget his legendary status. He's just a down to earth geezer, very friendly, plays guitar a bit. But his music is in our DNA and has been for decades and his guitar style is unique. But I don't have to tell you that., do I.
The gig we have in our agenda is still some 9 weeks away, and is wholly insignificant now under the circumstances. Whether it happens: I'll go with the flow as in, await what the rest of the band decides to do. In the meantime, I keep all fingers crossed for a recovery in due course.
What a year, folks.

Update from Facebook.

Kristina Donahue Daly with Jerry Donahue.
3 hrs · Los Angeles, CA, United States ·

Hi everyone,

Doc dropped by ICU today and said that dad's vitals look good and he's stable. So, they're moving him out of ICU but will continue to monitor him until CT scan tomorrow.

Dad is really sleepy right now and we're just letting him rest as much as possible.

A few people have asked me where to send cards and we're asking that they be sent to:

Susan Rey Bellas
29405 Luzon Drive
Santa Clarita CA 91390
United States

Thank you all so much for your continued prayers, good thoughts, love & support.

I wonder if we might ask one of the mods to arrange a card from Talkawhile?

My thoughts too - the more the merrier.  One winging its way as we speak.

Maybe David meant Talkawhile as a website, to send one as well as sending our own personal cards?

The latest from Kristina...

"Hi all,

Dad spent 2 hours in physical therapy today. They sat him up and got him on his feet. He then sat up on his own for 30 minutes!

He's paralyzed on his right side and is still without speech, but his occupational therapists have said they've seen worse cases fully recover, so that's what we're focusing on!

Dad has got some fight in him and he's very strong. He sometimes resists or retaliates when being asked to move, but he laughs when I say, "Behave!".

We have a long, hard road ahead of us, but we're celebrating the tiny wins. Thank you all so much for the prayers and well wishes! I truly believe they're working. Love to you all.

Kristina x "

Update from Facebook. Post-Stroke care is almost always a rollercoaster for all concerned, this is seriously bad news, however.

Susan Rey

Dear Jerry Donahue friends,
We jumped the gun on Jerry's prognosis.
They have found another bleed and we are back to serious situations.
Kristina Donahue Daly and I would like to get him moved to a higher quality care center UCLA, USC, Cedars..you've all said if there anything I can do... well this is it.....if anyone has any direct connections to doctors in those places can you please refer us to them..ASAP
Thank you!


Fingers crossed.

So very sad but my thoughts and prayers are with Jerry and his family. I was so fortunate to have been able to enjoy his performance in Fotheringay at their Southampton gig in June, it was a magical night.

Was a bit surprised that no mention of Jerry's situation was made from the stage at Cropredy (unless I missed it, of course).
