It is with a heavy heart that I do my best to relate the news regarding the condition of Richard "Lynwood Slim" Duran. Out of respect for Slim's family I have not reported any news of his condition this week. To dispel any rumors and to answer the MANY questions I have received I will attempt to explain what limited knowledge I have about his condition and fate. At this time Richard is still with us and has not passed. As some of you may know Slim had surgery a week ago to relive the pressure on his brain and gain a better understanding of his overall condition. After the surgery Richard remained heavily sedated and on a breathing apparatus. He was taken off of heavy sedation a couple of days ago but remained in a coma and on life support. It was determined at that time that there was serious damage to his brain and additionally his kidney's were failing. This in conjunction with his existing liver condition that included a degree of liver cancer brought the ER physician to the conclusion that the humane thing to do was to take Slim off of life support. It was the opinion of Richards mother, family and some close friends that a second opinion was necessary. The result of that opinion was again that it would best serve him to be taken off of life support. Please keep in mind that what I am relaying may not be facts but only what is my best understanding of the situation based on my conversations with David "Kid" Ramos and Slims partner Judy. Slim's family has made the decision to remove life support today, Saturday August 2nd at 12:00 pm PST. It is in Gods hands as to when Slim will make the journey and transition to the other side. Slim's family and close friends have been keeping constant vigil at the hospital and saying their goodbyes. At this time it would be best to express your love, respect and prayers for his peaceful transition through your words, feelings, photo's and support on his Facebook site or here. I will be at the hospital today and would be honored to pass your condolences to his family and friends. I will also pass your love directly to Richard as I believe his spirit can hear and feel you. Lynwood Slim has touched the hearts of thousands world wide through his friendships, personality and music. His music and legacy will remain forever. I will relate any information regarding funeral and memorial arrangements as I get them and I am sure others will do the same. God bless Richard "Lynwood Slim" Duran.
