The Ghost Inside’s Jonathan Vigil Is Battling ANOTHER Bone Infection

The-Ghost-Inside

The optimism of Californian metalcore legends The Ghost Inside is unparalleled in this scene. After the tragic bus accident they were involved in last year left every member with their own battle to fight, the hits just keep on coming. Frontman Jonathan Vigil, after already powering through a first bout, has just been diagnosed with a second bone infection.

Just over a week ago, we shared Vigil’s post that one of the screws in his ankle had broken through his skin, with the enduring vocalist having to undergo another surgery in order to avoid a bone infection. Nevertheless, the infection will bring on what Vigil described as another “six weeks of intravenous antibiotics. Another six weeks without progression. Another six weeks away from a seemingly simple goal of being able to just walk on my own again”.

The setbacks haven’t been easy to deal with for the band, but Vigil noted that while he “didn’t know how hard it would be”, he would “like to think I’ll come out stronger”. Considering how much every single member of The Ghost Inside has already been through, we’re pretty sure that strength is already there. If you’d like to help out, the Gofundme that was set up to support the act’s medical costs, which continue to increase under America’s cruel, cruel health system, is still running.

Read Vigil’s recovery update below.

 

My ankle bone has another infection from the screw dislodging and coming out of the skin. Another six weeks of intravenous antibiotics. Another six weeks without progression. Another six weeks away from a seemingly simple goal of being able to just walk on my own again. I’ve been put to the test many, many times during this ordeal. We all have. You would think that after nearly 7 months we would be back to normal, but we’re not. Actually far from it. I’ve always been the one to wear a smile on my face with the mantra “everything will be alright.” I’ve spent a lot of time wavering with this belief. More than I care to admit. I can sympathize more now with the other side because I’ve been the one for so long thats been on the pedestal. The one that has the easy job of saying “there, there. It’s ok.” But now I’m the one living it and I know just how difficult it can be. I’ve had my words shoved back in my face. And now it’s time to put my money where my mouth is. I just didn’t know how hard it would be but I’d like to think I’ll come out stronger
