The Ghost Inside’s Jonathan Vigil Set for More Surgery After Bone Infection Clears

0

Things are moving along — albeit slowly — for the members of The Ghost Inside as they work their way back to their promised goal of playing Warped Tour 2017.

Drummer Andrew Tkaczyk recently posted footage of himself walking with a prosthetic leg, and has even gotten behind the drum kit again. Guitarist Zach Johnson hasn’t updated the public since January, when he had two toes amputated, but we’re hoping no news is good news. But vocalist Jonathan Vigil, who suffered two broken ankles and fractured neck vertebrae, among other injuries, had his recovery halted six weeks ago when he developed a bone infection in one ankle.

Encouraging word for Vigil: recent blood work shows the bone infection has cleared, meaning doctors can finally perform the remaining surgeries on his ankles needed to improve mobility, which still limits his ability to walk. Vigil elaborated in a couple of posts to his Instagram account:

Hockey! Fuck yeah. I admire this kid’s grit. Here’s to hoping he can get back on the rink ASAP.
