Leslie Cochran Still In Hospital – Updates
This might be old news for some of y’all, but my first Paying Pizza Forward guest and local icon Leslie Cochran has been in the hospital for almost a week. It sounds pretty bad. Have a slice for Leslie, and keep him in your thoughts and prayers. As y’all may remember, his parting words to me when I bought him pizza were “don’t grow old”. I didn’t think he meant it seriously.
UPDATE – Not good at all. “An official with knowledge of the incident said Leslie’s injuries are life threatening condition and if he survives, he may experience “life-altering effects,” including remaining in a vegetative state.”
UPDATE 10/20 – Doing better, in rehab hospital. “‘I don’t know if he will be the same person as he was before. It takes six months to a year before we will know some of that,’ Gonzales said. ‘There is no crystal ball for it. He is going in the right direction.’”
