Friday night, Chicago White Sox helper Danny Farquhar collapsed in the dugout in the sixth inning and had to be hospitalized..
31-year-old Farquhar had to undergo emergency surgery over the weekend and is listed in a critical but stable condition. According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, Farquhar will stay in hospital for at least another three weeks. By Nightengale:
Farquhar will stay in the hospital and be closely monitored by neurosurgeons for at least the next three weeks. His family is now at his side, says Sohail Shahpar, Farquhar's longtime agent and close friend, who shakes her but wary of optimism.
"You just can not imagine that," http://www.cbssports.com/ Said Shahpar, not to a baseball player in the middle of the game. As a baseball player you have an operation by Tommy John, guys who blow out their arms or knees. Guys who take line drives from their bodies or even heads. But that?
At this point, a return to baseball is the last thing the Farquhar family is concerned with: the hope is that he can lead a normal life in the future, fortunately Farquhar has been able to get medical help fast and is currently stable.
The White Sox released a statement Monday, explaining that Farquhar was making progress.
