On January 12, Vixen’s Janet Gardner had to undergo an emergency surgery for a subdural hematoma. Fortunately, she is “recovering very well.”
“It is with immense gratitude and joy that we want you to know our Vixen front woman extraordinaire, Janet Gardner is currently recovering from emergency surgery for a subdural hematoma. In Los Angeles, on Friday, January 12, the day after playing a brilliant show with her solo band at the Whiskey A GoGo, she was rushed to the hospital and they had to drill a hole into her skull to relieve the hematoma and put a titanium plate to cover the hole.
She is recovering very well and our hearts are filled with relief. Thank you for your love and support and we look forward to seeing you soon.”
Gardner also issued her own statement:
“I wanted to take a moment, and catch everyone up on the last few, very eventful days.
First, I would like to thank everyone who came out to our show in Los Angeles, at the Whisky a GoGo, on Thursday. We had a wonderful time, and the crowd was amazing!
Unfortunately, on Friday, things turned a little upside down on us. I was rushed off to the hospital, and had to have emergency surgery to remove a subdural hematoma that was putting pressure on my brain. They had to drill a hole into my head to remove the hematoma and put a titanium plate in to cover the hole.
I am literally a metal head!
I apologize for having to cancel the Vamp’d show last night. We will be rescheduling that soon. I will keep you posted on my recovery.
Thank you for all the love and support!💜”
