Update From John
Note: John is unable to access ChicagoNow but wanted to personally update everyone.
I just wanted to say thank you for all the kind words and all the well-wishes. I can read everything, but I just have limited access and am unable to respond.
I am currently in the hospital and have been here since Thursday morning. I have a staph infection in my elbow and I am being treated with heavy duty antibiotics. I am feeling better and the elbow has shrunk to it’s normal size and shape, but my white blood cell count remains high — and so I am still stuck here until they find out exactly why.
It is especially hard that I can’t share this great time in Cubs baseball with all of you, though I assure you that I am watching every game and going nuts over this team. With all the impromptu fist pumps, I think I have probably set the record for triggering the IV alarm.
Just know that I am getting better and I will be around soon and through the stretch run of this great season. I will make up for the missing recaps (how about Javy Baez and Eloy Jimenez lately?) with lots of original prospect stuff this offseason.
See you all soon and go Cubs!
