Easy posted this in the comments on the Nate Quick story we posted yesterday. I don’t know Easy and I’m not in Dallas but I sincerely hope and pray that the theme of his statement below is the whole story. I’m hearing a bit more from other sources close to the situation but of respect for my friend Nate, I will not report specific details. All I can say is please continue to pray for him. Kev
Hello everyone. I am formerly known as DJ Eazy Ice from Power 98 in Charlotte, a former co-worker and roommate of Nate. We’ve worked together in Charlotte and here in Dallas. I’ve received a lot of calls & text messages and what has bothered me are some of the “speculations” that I have heard since Sunday morning. I felt the need to submit a post since I have been at the hospital off and on since Saturday night. Nate has complications with his liver which has caused other organs to malfunction and shut down. They are keeping him heavily sedated and he’s on a ventilator. Forgive me for not knowing a lot of the “medical terms”. Saturday, he was rushed to the hospital after collapsing at his home. He had stopped breathing and had to be resuscitated. They had to put a tube down his throat for his breathing. I got to the hospital and he was very pale and lost a lot his color, and today, he looked like he had much of his tan color back. I spoke to one of the nurses, and I was told that the levels of his vitals were all out of line when he was admitted and within a day, everything had sort of leveled out to a stable state. At times he can respond to voices and tries to to move his mouth and open his eyes. If you hold his hand and talk to him, he’ll try to squeeze your hand to respond to you.
He recognizes familiar voices and will try to open his eyes. No Limit Larry from WPEG flew in to visit Nate today and was very responsive to Larry. He also responded to voices of coworkers that visited from K-104 and KRNB. I haven’t set up a Twitter account but I will attempt to set up one tonight to submit updates. A lot of people have heard different things and have said to me……”If I hear something, I will call you to verify it”!!! I will be going back to the hospital in the morning (Tuesday) and I will update you all sometime tomorrow. If you have any questions, email me at [email protected] I’m a FIRM believer in the power of prayer and I ask that you ask in your prayer for God’s covering over Nate. He’s touched SO MANY lives and he’s in prayers of many. Pray and BELIEVE that God heals!!!!! God Bless you All!
