Last week, Black Breath drummer Jamie Byrum was hit by a vehicle and had to undergo emergency surgery after suffering multiple breaks in his leg. The band issued the following update today on their Facebook page:
Good news, an update from Jamie!
"Back at home after a week in the hospital and feeling good. My leg, which was broken in 4 places after being mauled by a very unthreatening looking car, is healing up well. I still can't walk, or do much of anything and am currently locked in at my house as I can't get down my steps! Friends, feel free to stop by anytime, I'm not going anywhere. The next couple months all I have planned is recovering and playing guitar. We have an album to write and I got all the free time so let the fun begin. Would like to extend my deepest gratitude to all the friends and family that have had my back through this fiasco. As well as anyone else sending some PMA my way. It's unreal as there are too many to mention, but you know who you are! Thank you all! Love you guys…
As somebody who has went through a break in his leg, it's no joke. You never regain full mobility. It's great to hear his positive attitude and that he's on the first step to full recovery and back to blasting behind the kit.
