Jason Oman Update from Atlanta

Posted by Simon Leung in Personal, Travel, Updates on October 18th, 2007 | No Comments

I’ve received tons of emails and messages from countless friends and well wishers who are asking about how Jason Oman is doing, so I thought I’d give you a quick update on his progress.

I just came back from the Emory University Hospital here in Atlanta with my local Apprentice, Mitch Mauldin.

We only got to see Jason briefly because he had just taken his medication, so he was about to get his rest.

Physically, Jason seems to be recuperating well after his surgery, which took place earlier this week.

While he appeared to be in a positive mental state, he still has a little problem with facial recognition at this time.

When I first walked into his room, Jason looked a little confused as I greeted him with, “Hey Superstar!”

After staring at me for a few seconds, he greeted me back: “What’s up man?”

I told him my name to help him out, and he responded, “Simon… Simon, Simon?”

I smiled and said “Yep!”

He replied excitedly, “Cool!”

As always in good spirits, I knew deep down inside, my friend is still in there.

Before I left, I gave him a gift bag filled with the get well wishes left in the comments from my previous blog post.

Hundreds of people stopped by to leave Jason a message, including Mark Joyner, Alex Mandossian, Mike Filsaime, Joel Comm, Dave Lakhani, Tellman Knudson, Mark Widawer, Michael Penland, David Garfinkel, Donna Fox, Kevin Wilke, Sterling Valentine, Harris Fellman, Heather Vale, Jeremy Gislason, Jason James, Frank Sousa, Larry Benet, Glenn Dietzel, Mike Morgan, Jason Moffatt, Eric Holmlund, Ross Goldberg and Brian Edmondson, just to name a few.

I’m sure Jason will really enjoy reading these messages when he gets better, and thanks again to all of you for your continued support.

Keep those recovery thoughts and prayers coming… I have a good feeling they will be answered real soon.

Jason – Stay strong buddy! You got lots of love coming your way :)
