Two days after flying home to California from New Jersey, where he has been undergoing treatment at a brain injury clinic for over a year, Deftones bass player Chi Cheng has been hospitalized with an infection.

Yesterday the following was posted online via Cheng's mother, Jeanne Marie Cheng:

"[Chi] just got home last night from NJ and is in ER with something serious going on... pneumonia and don't know what else. Not good!"

Hours later, Gina (of OneloveforChi.com) posted additional update:

"Chi is in ICU on three antibiotics for pneumonia. Blood pressure and oxygen are both low. Please send healing."

Update #1 - A new post on Oneloveforchi.com suggests that Chi's condition has improved slightly.
