"Everything that’s happened to me, I’m grateful for. Maybe that sounds cliché, but I’m really, really grateful.”

He added, "I’m happy."

“I had what they call a slight stroke in March. Everything is back to normal, except my left foot. I can’t walk on my left foot, so I’m walking with a walker. It’s making me feel old,” he revealed.

"But at least it helps me get around. Another thing I can’t stand is having people do things for me. I was always someone who did things for themselves.”

He continued, “They thought I was going to die in March. They told my two boys to come home. It was really touch-and-go."

"I don’t remember any of it, because I was out during the whole time."

"I had a sepsis infection, I had a new stent put on the heart. It’s been amazing – everyone tells me they can’t believe I made it through.”

"They say that’s coming, the more I exercise. I might have a slight limp. But I’ll take it.”

King is in good spirits and looking forward to the future: “I’ve got great kids, great family. Kids in Florida, kids here. I got a son [Chance] going to University of Southern California – he’s a pitcher. Got another one [Cannon] whose a third baseman for West LA. I go to watch their games. I’ve got it pretty good.”
