A SECOND MESSAGE FROM LOU REED

I would like to thank the Cleveland Clinic and all of you around the world who have lifted me with prayer and wishes of love. Your support has buoyed me forever and I am deeply grateful. I am also really up and strong. Thanks to your spirit.

A MESSAGE FROM LAURIE ANDERSON

“When I was speaking recently with a journalist from the London Times I said, ‘I don’t think Lou will ever fully recover.’ We were not talking about his physical condition. Lou is in the best physical shape in years – strong and energetic. He has a wonderful new life now and can do anything he wants. We were talking about how a traumatic event – a surgery or a calamity – can change your life. These things make you reevaluate everything in your life. And while they mark you forever, these traumas can be extremely positive. And I think for Lou this is especially true. He gets a chance to see things with enormous perspective. We couldn’t be happier at the way this turned out.”
