Many emotions have flooded my mind over the past 24 hours. Questions, worry, and anxiety from hundreds of miles away as the news poured in little by little from Neva. (Jay’s wife)
I’ve learned that Jay Salser is currently in a medical induced coma as he slowly, hopefully works his way back to recovery in a Texas hospital. With Neva’s permission, I’m letting the ’67 Beetle community know the latest as of 10:46 PM on 2.19.19.
In her own words.
“It will probably be a few weeks to a month before Jay is back at his computer, so a word to his favorite group would probably be in order. I know he would want you to thank the LORD with him for answered prayer in preserving his life. We do appreciate your prayers for his recovery.
The short story is: Jay’s heart threw off a shower of clots during A-fib that blocked arteries in the small intestine, of which 1/2 died. The surgeon removed the dead tissue and reconnected for full function. He’ll be in ICU a while, in hospital a little longer, and in physical rehab a little longer before he’ll be back at his desk.”
So many know this, but Jay is admired all over the world for his articles, advice and knowledge shared here at 1967beetle.com. He’s a very humble guy. His efforts and labor of love for sharing vintage VW knowledge does not go unnoticed or unappreciated.
He’s helped this community grow in ways I could have never imagined possible.
If you’ve been touched by Jay, (we all have) please chime in below and say a few words. I’d like to consider this a get well card.
We love you, Jay.
