Things are getting better for Anaheim Duck Patrick Eaves. According the Anaheim Ducks, he is currently resting comfortably in stable condition at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach after being diagnosed with what is suspected to be Guillain-Barre syndrome, a disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks the peripheral nervous system.
According to the Anaheim Ducks, “After feeling symptoms of weakness, Eaves visited specialists Dr. Robert Watkins Sr. and Dr. Danny Benmoshe last week, which later led Eaves being diagnosed and admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the hospital. Eaves’ condition stabilized over the weekend and he was transferred out of the ICU.”
Thanks to the specialists Patrick Eaves is expected to make a full recovery.
Here is a statement from Patrick Eaves and Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray.
Patrick Eaves: I want to thank Dr. Robert Watkins Sr. and Dr. Danny Benmoshe for their early diagnosis of my condition, along with the proactive Ducks medical team. Thanks to them and the incredible nurses at Hoag Hospital, I’m on the road to recovery. I’ve received tremendous amount of support over the last few days, most importantly from my family, friends and teammates. I’m determined to fully overcome this and return to the ice as soon as possible.
Bob Murray: Our sole focus at this time is on Patrick’s general health and well-being. We are grateful his condition was diagnosed early by Dr. Robert Watkins Sr. and Dr. Danny Benmoshe, and thank the staff at Hoag Hospital and our own medical personnel for their efforts. What defines Patrick Eaves is his strength of character, and that will serve him well in his recovery. Our thoughts are with Patrick and his family at this time.
