Burlap to Cashmere's Johnny Philippidis released from hospital
Johnny Philippidis of the recently reunited Burlap to Cashmere was to be released from the hospital yesterday after being brutally beaten and left for dead on November 17.
Neil Gorman, public relations director of Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, left a voice message for me yesterday saying the Philippidis family was busy arranging his discharge yesterday. Gorman says he spoke with Johnny yesterday and that he was "looking good." He says the discharge is good news, as Philippidis will be able to continue his recovery at home.
I'm hoping to hear from a member of the Philippidis family to get more details about Johnny's condition, but until then, we can hopefully construe his discharge as a positive sign. Please continue to pray for his recovery.
