In a blog update on his website, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross said that his wife Jan suffered a catastrophic brain injury and is still alive only thanks to the life support equipment as she fights to recover.
“I will fully admit that there has been no experience in my life that could have prepared me for this life changing week. To see one’s life partner and love of one’s life being kept alive via life support equipment is tragically heartbreaking,” Ross wrote.
JR said that in order for his wife to survive, the swelling in her brain has to subside soon, however she “is fighting for all’s she worth to save her life.”
Ross detailed how his wife Jan made him a better man and was there to nurse him following his three bouts of Bells palsy and the colon surgery.
“This woman loves me more than I’ll ever deserve and simply knowing her has enriched my life to levels that I can never repay,” Ross added, saying that this blog was written “through many tears and shaky hands.”
JR thanked his fans for all the love and support showed to him and his family over the past few days.
