Today there has been fallout from something someone posted on his facebook about Johnny. I didn't think much about it until we got a call from a friend who was frantic over the news. I don't figure you all will hear much about it, but if you do, here's what's been going on.

Johnny has suffered from anemia for a while now and after some tests it was discovered there was a tumor in his colon. It and a few inches of the colon were removed about three weeks ago and from all the path reports, there is no further treatment necessary. He's recovering slowly but he's recovering and he doesn't have one foot in the grave as the rumor is implying.

Anyway, I just needed to try to unring the bell. Thanks.

THANK YOU for the update/clarification. I had not heard/read any of this -- but good to know the truth in any case. And VERY good to hear full recovery is expected.

I appreciate the kind thoughts and will pass them on to Johnny. Honestly, I just wanted to let everyone know he's okay. I had no idea the person who made the facebook post would ever do anything that invasive of our privacy and we've been getting calls all day from people who think he's 'on the way out.' I figure if any of you hear anything, you'll be able to set the record straight.

Ann, I didn't see that post and I'm glad I missed it. But, I am also glad to hear that Johnny is OK. Age plays havoc with our bodies and minds, but if we remain grateful that we got to live this life at this time, all will be well for our remaining years here and in the hereafter.

Love to you and your sweet husband. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help get that book out. If I had Willie's to do over again, the pictures would be very different (not all - just some). Johnny and Tom Dowd didn't receive much recognition and I am sorry we didn't touch on that. They were the men that made The Brothers sound as good as they did.

Johnny is a lucky man to have a loving wife who is short in statue, but as tall and strong as a redwood when it comes to your love. You are both blessed to have each other.

With all my love and sincerity,

Lizzie

Ann, I have to tell you, the first time I met you and Johnny, understand ,from a fans perspective..I was overwhelmed with feelings of admiration and respect.

So much of the music we love, the best of the best , has had Johnny's hand in .

Then to realize what gracious ,lovely people you are, well, that was the icing on the cake.

Please give Johnny an extra hug from the McDonald's , we wil keep him in our prayers, thankful he is on the road to recovery..

Thank you everyone for those wonderful words and kind thoughts. I'm usually a very private person....believe it or not...and don't like to post things such as this but the facebook post just blew things wide open. Last time Johnny had surgery we had people calling from all over telling us they heard he'd died....don't know exactly why they called his number if they thought he was dead....but.....

Since a couple of you mentioned the book, I'm returning the manuscript today after doing the final edit and compiling the index and it's scheduled for March release from Mercer. I've talked with EJ and plans to do a book signing at the big house one day are being discussed. I appreciate all the encouragement and interest I've received from you all....it sure made slogging through the process much easier.

Was not aware (as I do not frequent FB) but am very glad to hear that Johnny will recover. Had to be quite a scare, I'm sure.

This is the dark side of Mark Zuckerberg's view of the world, in which he says "we may have to redefine our definition of privacy", implying that it may be obsolete - and that he is the one who has the power to do it - and fully intends to.

Ann - My prayers are going out to you and Johnny. And shame on that person who would do something like that.
