Deion Sanders has a very important person in his life by his side.
The Colorado football coach is recovering after emergency surgery to treat persistent blood clots in his legs he announced in a video posted Saturday. That wasn’t the only announcement.
Deion Sanders’ longtime girlfriend, Tracey Edmonds, took to her Instagram and shared an encouraging message from the hospital on Sunday afternoon.
“I’m not leaving this spot until it’s time for #CoachPrime @deionsanders to walk up out of here which we hope will be very soon! Sending everyone LOVE!”
Sanders’ procedure was to correct blood-flow issues that have plagued Sanders dating back to his days coaching at Jackson State. His health has been a major issue.
Sanders also updated things by stating it is unlikely he’ll have to amputate his left foot due to the same blood clot issues. It was revealed Sanders could lose his left foot if he were to undergo another surgery. University of Colorado vascular surgeons Dr. Donald Jacobs and Dr. Max Wohlauer told Sanders that in that clip if the current pain in a dislocated toe isn’t dealt with soon it could lead to a more serious condition that will result in the amputation.
Sanders missed three games after his left big toe and second toe were amputated. With the 2023 season quickly approaching, a decision about what to do with his foot could come before the start of the fall season.
Sanders, who is entering his first season at Colorado, will coach his first game with Colorado on Sept. 2 at TCU.
