An update from @Mrs D on Facebook.

A quick but brief update:

Max’s operation went well.
Far bigger than any (including the surgeons) anticipated.

Max is a fighter and we all know that.

Thankyou so much for all the calls, texts, PM’s and well wishes. It really means a lot to all of us and we know you all genuinely care.

Please don’t phone the hospital to try and get information because those nurses are so busy and as we all know due to privacy reasons no one will be told anything.

Max is still in the intensive care unit with a long way to go.
For his own privacy and dignity we as a family will only say please pray because that’s what Maxy would want you all to be doing.

I have so many messages and things I haven’t responded to. I’m sorry.

But for now and as I said in original post my main concern right now is Max. I need to sleep and eat and be as strong as I can to be there for Max each day, so the calls are very much appreciated but please my focus is being besides Max.

His family and I want you all to just pray and keep sending positive vibes. Max has always had a fighting spirit in him and that’s not changing now.

Again we ask to allow us the chance to be healthy for ourselves while being there for Max that you give us the privacy and space needed.

I’ll update again soon.

Much love and prayers to My Maxy.

The legend

Thankyou so much @BOZO for the Dan murphy’s Card and his scratchies. They will be kept in a safe place until Maxy is able to make good use of them.

Thankyou all for your well wishes and support. It really means a lot to myself, Max and his 2 sons.

Keep the prayers going

Max really means a lot to all Manly Fans as well .

Max saved our club and has given all fans the joy of having a great club to follow like Manly

He was part of our club when we were at our peak having demoralized the Storm in a record Grand final 40 - nil win which proudly still stands today

His big heart filled with passion and generosity will always be appreciated

Max Delmege in brush with death

MAX Delmege has told of his brush with death after being placed in an induced coma following open heart surgery.

The Manly Sea Eagles coowner from 2002 to 2010 told the Daily he is incredibly lucky to be alive and has vowed to be back at his beloved Brookie Oval before too long. The property developer, who now lives on the Gold Coast, was taken to hospital by his wife Sam earlier this month after struggling with his breathing.

Doctors discovered his heart valves were leaking and he was booked in for open heart surgery on August 12.

“Max was scared,” Mrs Delmege wrote on her blog. “In my 10 years of knowing Max all I have known is a stoic, optimistic man... in the days before the operation I saw a vulnerable side.

“A scared man who thought his time was coming to an end.”

She told the Daily: “Waiting for news during the operation was just awful. I was just pacing up and down.”

He was on the operating table for seven hours, four hours of which his heart was out of his body while the surgeons tried to repair the valves. It was then reconnected and given a jump start.

He had made it through surgery but in the days after his organs began to fail.

Doctors placed him in an induced coma in an attempt for his body to heal.

“Thinking I may have to say goodbye to my best friend, I couldn’t even contemplate,” Mrs Delmege said.

For eight days he remained in a coma before he finally started to improve.

Remarkably before long the old Max was back, and, wrapped in his Sea Eagles blanket, he even managed to get the footy on the TV in hospital.

“I am incredibly lucky,” he said on Monday having returned home. “The support from everyone at Manly has been fantastic. I even got a card with some scratchies from the Silvertails.

“I want to get back to Brookvale and I want to be at the Grand Final if we get there.

“They are a terrific bunch of people at Manly and that’s why I have no qualms for what I did.”
