The RemDawg let fans know how he was doing through twitter today:
Hi everyone it’s Jerry. Thx for . . . your concern. In February, I had a case of pneumonia and a bad infection followed . . .
I went off to Spring Training without ever having a chance to completely recuperate. I am paying the price now . . .
I’ve decided to take some time off to fully recover. Hopefully it’ll be a short time. I miss doing the games! Thanks again, Jerry.
Almost forgot . . . Go Sox. Jerry.
