Ian Boyne recovering well, says JISThursday, December 07, 2017
DEPUTY chief executive officer of the Jamaica Information Service (JIS) Ian Boyne is out of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the University Hospital of the West Indies and is “recuperating well” in the Tony Thwaites Wing, JIS said in a release yesterday.
Boyne was rushed to the hospital on Saturday after falling ill.
“I am deeply touched by the outpouring of love from all sectors of the society,” Boyne is quoted as saying in the release, as he was updated on the concern expressed by Jamaicans at home and abroad on social media and through calls to JIS and radio stations.
The release said he was told that churches everywhere were in prayer for his recovery.
“I am grateful to God. I am a miracle,” he added as he reflected on the frightening experience.
Boyne stated that he has been seeing his doctors regularly and paying attention to his diet and exercise routine, and encourages everyone to do the same, the release said.
“And I am deeply moved to know that I am loved and appreciated by my colleagues, especially at JIS and in the media. Tell them I shall be back and doing more programmes and writing more articles in the near future with God's help,” the veteran journalist said while asking the JIS to assure everyone that he is doing well.
“God was remarkably good to me on Saturday. I want to thank the team of exceptional doctors and nurses who have worked with me in intensive care,” the deputy CEO said.
