Former Prime Minister Bruce Golding continues to receive postoperative care in Miami following major lumbar spine surgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital on July 30,2012. This became necessary because of an infection which had developed following his initial spine operation in Jamaica on June 9,2012 and which had failed to respond fully to a second operation in Jamaica on July 4,2012. The infection was no fault of the medical team in Jamaica who in our opinion did an excellent job. He has been fitted with a special back-brace to help stabilize his back during the healing process and is receiving an extensive course of physiotherapy. His doctors saw him today and expressed satisfaction with his progress. It is to be understood however that full recovery will take several months.

 

The family wishes to express our appreciation for the outpouring of prayers and support which have come from many Jamaicans at this very difficult time for the family. We would also like to thank all those,including representatives of the government, who have offered assistance of one sort or another.
