The family of former Chief Minister John Osborne has issued a formal statement in respect of his recent illness and hospitalisaton in the United States.

“In response to the many inquiries about the health of former Chief Minister John A. Osborne, his family wishes first of all, to thank everyone for their concern, their expressions of empathy, their prayers, and their wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

“Mr. Osborne has been hospitalized in the United States for the past six weeks undergoing testing and treatment for an illness for which he had received preliminary care in the hospital at home (in Montserrat). Over the past weeks, he has undergone surgeries of varying levels of seriousness, and has baffled and astounded his physicians on several occasions with his ability to rebound and recover. One surgeon noted that, “He is a remarkable man.”

“It has been a difficult and painful time for him, and a challenge for his doctors as they continue to attempt to arrive at a firm diagnosis and, following that, to deliver a prognosis for his recovery. Currently, Mr. Osborne is in critical, but stable condition, and the people of Montserrat will be kept informed as this improves.

“He is being attended to by a team of some of the most meticulous and capable physicians, and by his family, and the expectation and hope is that he will make a good recovery.”

The former Chief Minister served Montserrat for over 40 years as an elected member of parliament, having served as Chief Minister from 1978 – 1991, and again from 2001- 2005. He retired in 2009 and did not contest the elections last September.

Many well wishers are hoping that the veteran gentleman will make a full recovery.
