Fujiwara's Health / Show Postponement

Below is the announcement posted on BUMP OF CHICKEN's homepage at http://www.bumpofchicken.com/. It looks like Fujiwara had a lung pneumothorax and had surgery, so there was some live show rescheduling. The message says he is doing well, and I am a bit worried, but I'm sure they will take good care of Fujiwara to make sure he gets well. I wish him a fast and complete recovery! All your fans are sending well wishes your way!!!!! Please be careful to rest and recover and don't overdo it!

I should mention for anyone who is worried, I have a great friend who also had a pneumothorax. The name is a lot scarier sounding than the actual thing. My friend is doing great now and when I told him about Fujiwara he said there's no need to be concerned. It's still a big deal, but Fujiwara should get totally better. ^_^
