Rodriguez’s family in Detroit have asked us to let everyone know that Rodriguez is well and on the mend after being operated on, following the stroke that he had in February. The surgery to repair the damage caused by the stroke was successful, and Rodriguez is feeling strong, and, following the physical therapy that he is currently undergoing, as part of his post-op rehab, his family are hopeful that he will be returning home soon to continue and complete his healing process.

Rodriguez, who will be turning 81 in July, is strong and in good spirits and his family have asked all his South African fans, as well as all his fans around the world, to keep Rodriguez in their thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery.

His family have also told us that it will be wonderful if all his fans could post their well wishes, as well as their messages of love, support, and encouragement which they will pass on to him and which will be a source of great inspiration and positive motivation to him at a time when that is essential as a part of his recovery.

On behalf of all of us at, we join all Rodriguez’s followers and fans around the world in wishing Rodriguez a full and complete recovery and in sending all our love and best wishes and support to Rodriguez’s Family.

We will continue to update everyone on Rodriguez’s recovery….
