The soap community has been on pins and needles waiting for word as to how veteran soap star Vincent Irizarry is doing after undergoing emergency brain surgery. Now comes that update — and his incredible gratitude for the love and support he felt during this ordeal.
Vincent Irizarry — Awake and Still Charming
His girlfriend Yvonne Glisson revealed the update in a new post to her Instagram account and the word is good! “Overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and concern we have received concerning Vincent’s emergency surgery,” she began the post late Friday evening. “So hard to answer each of you individually.
“Thank you all who have reached out, commented, reposted or shared your thoughts and prayers,” she wrote, full of gratitude. “Vincent’s surgeon performed the procedure early this am skillfully but finding a bit more than he expected.” While that may have been a surprise, it wasn’t anything that couldn’t be handled by the doctor.
“But he has been watched and tested all day and thankfully fluid has not increased again,” Glisson continued. “They will keep him there and be watching for that or any complications and observing his condition before sending him home. Otherwise, Vincent has been awake all day talking, eating and being his ever charming self even with his head bandaged and tubes coming out all over him!”
For anyone who missed the original story that started this journey for Vincent Irizarry, his girlfriend, Glisson, posted a request for prayers for the actor who needed the emergency to remove fluid on his brain. Back in December, he has tried to intervene with a man who was being volatile to his wife in a parking lot and he got injured in the process — in which Glisson revealed he had suffered “multiple bruises and a serious head gash and concussion resulting in fluid to his brain.”
“On behalf of Vincent, Thank you for all the love and well wishes,” she ended this new update. “It is not overlooked or taken for granted. He is as always grateful❤️” Soap Hub continues to add our prayers and good wishes, along with the rest of the soap community, in wishing Vincent Irizarry a continued thorough recovery.
