LeBron James provides an update following the cardiac arrest of his 18-year-old son Bronny James.

After his son, Bronny, suffered cardiac arrest during basketball practice at the University of Southern California on Monday, LeBron James provided an update and thanked supporters for their well-wishes.

The 18-year-old fell unconscious after his morning workout and was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center via “Code 3, lights and sirens,” where he spent less than 24 hours in the intensive care unit before being transferred to a lesser level of care.

James broke his silence on Thursday morning with an update on his kid.

“I’d like to thank everyone who has sent my family love and prayers. We sense you, and I’m glad. “Everyone is doing fantastic,” he wrote.

“Our family is safe and healthy, and we can feel your love.” We’ll have more to say when we’re ready, but I just wanted to thank everyone for their support! #JamesGang”

It’s unknown what the incoming freshman’s road to recovery will look like right now.

Experts believe Bronny’s prognosis is bright because he was allowed to leave the ICU so quickly.

“The longer someone is down from cardiac arrest, the more potential damage to their heart tissue, brain tissue, and body,” Dr. Jonathan Drezner of the University of Washington Medical Center told CNN. “A short stay in the ICU followed by a transfer to a lower level of care suggests that there was very little damage and is definitely a good sign.”

Let us all remember Bronny James and his family in our prayers as he recovers from cardiac arrest.
