Still in poor condition is Gerard Juling, who was hospitalized last week with initially neglected pneumonia. For this reason, he had to miss the De Toppers event on Monday. Since then, the situation has worsened, although he himself says from his bed – new – sick.
Gerrard has been at Amstland Hospital in Amstelveen for the past few days, but was transferred to VU Medical Center in Amsterdam on Wednesday.
“They couldn’t do much for me at Amstelveen. That is why it was decided to move me. This happened this afternoon.” Gerrard is completely unsure: “Now I’m lying in my room waiting for what’s to come. These days are going to be very exciting for me. Tomorrow afternoon (Thursday afternoon, editor)I was told they would insert a drain through my back. He has to get the fluid out of my lungs. If that doesn’t work, I’ll have to have surgery on Friday. It shocked me all, it’s intense and hot! “
However, the singer remains optimistic. Everything will be fine, I still think positively but the pain is not normal, he said in a shortness of breath.
It all started for him with an annoying cough, which he might have underestimated at first. Overall, Gerrard has had pain in his lung for about two weeks. Things got so bad that he decided to go to the hospital. At first it was thought to be a pulmonary embolism, but it turned out to be not the case. He says: I had the flu ten days ago, and no corona. Then there was pneumonia. The pain is caused by fluid behind the lung.”
