Unhappy Lei is Sick

Kim's father, Lei Clijsters, is reported to be seriously ill, according to the family's spokesman. Further diagnostics will reveal the real seriousness, but in any case Lei has stopped his activities as trainer with his footballclub. Anyway, he is back home after a visit to the hospital. It is not known if the situation is life-threatening. The Clijsters-family prefers to handle this as a private matter, but will give more info if necessary. Lei is only 51.

Quote:
Lei Clijsters, ex-Rode Duivel en vader van voormalig tennisster Kim, is ernstig ziek. Dat meldt de woordvoerder van de familie Clijsters. Om een juiste diagnose te kunnen stellen, moet de 51-jarige Clijsters nog verdere onderzoeken ondergaan. De komende weken zal hij derdeklasser Tongeren dan ook niet trainen. Clijsters - die in het ziekenhuis onderzocht werd - is ondertussen weer thuis.

Over de aard en de ernst van de ziekte, wilde de woordvoerder nog niets kwijt. "De juiste diagnose moet nog worden gesteld", klinkt het. "De enige reden waarom wij hiermee naar buiten komen, is om wilde speculaties te vermijden." De familie Clijsters wil dit verder zoveel mogelijk in de privésfeer houden. Meer informatie zal op tijd en stond worden vrijgegeven.

Re: Lei is Sick

this doesn't sound good
hope it isn't too serious, the diagnosis still has to be made.
and Kim can definitely miss stress like this in this stage of her pregnancy...

Re: Lei is Sick

Hey guys I also just read the news.. We all know that Lei is everything for Kim, so I'm sure this will affect her very much.

Re: Lei is Sick

Els did have cancer. Liver, I think...

This kind of stress and dillema couldn't have come at a worse time. Let's just all hope it's not too bad.

I guess we'll learn a bit more if and when Lei's blog comes out.

Re: Lei is Sick

I just read this article...Unfortunatelly, Lei is pretty sick, altought the results of the analysis weren't made public!


Slecht nieuws voor Lei Clijsters
De gezondheidstoestand van Lei Clijsters (51) is erger dan gedacht. Zoals wij vorige week al schreven is de vader van Kim zwaar ziek.

Uit bijkomende tests de voorbije week is gebleken dat de situatie heel ernstig is. &#226;€œDe familie wil de zaak in de priv&#195;&#169;sfeer houden, maar omdat de mensen er zoveel over praten willen we er toch beperkt over communiceren&#226;€, zegt Jeroen Jespers, woordvoerder van de familie. &#226;€œLei is voorlopig niet opgenomen in een ziekenhuis. Hij zit gewoon thuis en het hangt van zijn keuze af, of er verdere stappen genomen worden.&#226;€

Clijsters weet nog maar zeer recent dat hij ziek is. Bij een controle na een aanhoudende kuch bleek de situatie zeer ernstig te zijn.

Lei Clijsters (Opitter, 9 november 1956) was een zeer succesvol voetballer en winnaar van de Gouden Schoen in 1988. Na zijn voetbalcarri&#195;&#168;re investeerde hij zijn tijd in de tenniscarri&#195;&#168;re van Kim. Een paar maanden geleden ging hij weer aan de slag in het voetbal, als trainer van SK Tongeren. Kim en haar man Brian Lynch verwachten eind februari een dochtertje, Lei wordt dan voor de eerste keer opa.

Re: Lei is Sick

quick translation maybe:
as written last weeku, Lei is very ill, new tests have shown that the situation is very serious and worse than thought. The family would like to keep it all private but because so many people talk about it, they still want to communicate about it a little bit, so said Jeroen Jespers, spokesman of the family. Lei hasn't been admitted to the hospital for the moment. He's at home and it depends on his choice as to whether there will be taken further steps. He only found out he's ill recently. During an examination of a persistent cough, the situation turned out to be very serious...

let's hope he gets better...
