The musician, who has never made a full recovery from his 2008 car accident that resulted in a coma, had just returned home after spending recovery time in New Jersey. The trip was funded by fans and friends.
From a post by the Cheng family:
Shout out to Chi’s worldwide family – prayer request – he just got back home last night from N.J. and is in ER with something serious going on. Pneumonia and don’t know what else. Not good! Please send the word again to pray hard. Thank you all! One love.
A second posting suggested that Cheng had been in the intensive care unit and taking three antibiotics to combat the pneumonia. They also stated that his blood pressure and oxygen levels were both low.
Spoke with Chi’s mom. He really needs our prayers. He’s in ICU and still fighting. Gods will be done!
