    Cool John Wilkinson is recovering well!!!

    John Wilkinson, Elvis former rhythm guitarist, has been taken to the hospital, where doctors performed surgery. He had complaints about heavy pains in his stomach, and the doctors advised him to have an operation. John Wilkinson is OK now, but it will take at least three weeks before he can leave the hospital.

    Update December 5, 2007 from ElvisMatters:

    Good news! Our dear friend-of-the-family John Wilkinson is doing much better. He has been walking a little, and the doctors are pleased with his progress. He will stay for probably another 2 weeks at the hospital, until he feels ready to go home again.Source: ElvisMatters / Updated: Dec 5, 2007

    John Wilkinson takes a Sabbatical

    John Wilkinson, our dear friend-of-the-family, has asked us to inform the fans about his medical condition.
    As you may have read on this site, John was taken to the hospital for surgery.
    With John’s permission, we can now give you more details.
    John was diagnosed with colon-cancer.
    During surgery two weeks ago, the doctors took away his colon, and a tumor.
    In order to be 100% sure that all the cancer cells are removed, John starts with chemotherapy later this month.
    In the meantime, he’s home to rest and recuperate.

    Given the circumstances, John has cancelled all performances for the next 14 months – maybe longer, if necessary.
    But John told us that, if he feels better after that period of time, he will be ‘available’ to the fans once again.
    To quote John: “I will not give up on the fans, for as long as I may live.”
    What his plans include after his Sabbatical, is unsure.
    What matters now, is that he takes the rest he needs and deserves, and prepares himself for the chemotherapy that begins right after Christmas.

    Just like it was before the surgery, we keep in close contact with John, and if there are developments, we will post the news – needless to say after checking with John first, or – like now – on his request.
    John will be kept informed on what’s happening in the Elvis world, but he’ll be ‘watching’ instead of ‘participating’.

    Get well-cards for John are, of course, still very welcome at this address:

    John Wilkinson / ElvisMatters – 140 Postelarenweg – 2400 Mol – Belgium.

    We will deliver the cards to John personally in Springfield, MO in three weeks time.
