James King at home recuperating

We got some very good news today about James King, who had been hospitalized last week for treatment after a number of blood clots were found in his lungs and his legs.

Julie King sent along this update just a few minutes ago, which will be welcome news to James’ many fans and friends in the bluegrass world.

“I am pleased to report that James was released from the hospital Friday evening, and has been at home resting.  He’s currently on numerous blood thinners, and a very strict diet, managing to keep the fever away. Prayer definitely works!

I printed and/or read every message sent to him the last few days. For James, that was the best medicine.

Once again, thanks to all who sent well wishes, and hopefully he’ll be back on stage, at least for a part-time schedule soon.”

Cards and notes can be sent to…
