Just got this from the Panthers' PR department and felt I should pass along:
"On behalf of Richard and our entire family, I want to thank the fans, his teammates, the Panthers and Sabres organizations, plus so many others for their prayers and well wishes,'' Jessica Zednik said.
"I especially want to thank the medical staff involved in his care and the Buffalo General Hospital for their tremendous support during this difficult time. Richard continues to improve and we are encouraged each day. We thank you for respecting our privacy and would ask everyone to continue to keep Richard in their thoughts over the next few days.”
Sonya Noor, M.D., Richard Zednik’s attending surgeon, said he continues to improve and should be discharged over the next 48-72 hours.
