Deftones Bassist Chi Cheng Making Progress & Could Soon Return Home

Deftones Bassist Chi Cheng Making Progress & Could Soon Return Home -

Deftones bassist, Chi Cheng, who has now spent nearly four years critically in hospital after a car crash in 2008, could be returning home imminently.

In a new update at the OneLoveForChi.com website the bassist's mother posted that her son was now responding to treatment after a chronic bout of pneumonia put him back in hospital in June.  

The update read:

"He looked better than we had expected. He was quite aware of what was going on. He is still on life support and not enjoying the tube down his throat. He did respond to us and they are going to try and wean him off the breathing machine tomorrow. When they tried today, he did not do well, but he has been on it before and gotten off without incident."

Cheng, who is the founding bassist with the nu-metal icons, has made significant progress in the past year but it now looks as though his recent battle with pneumonia could be a victorious one.
