HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Slack key master Cyril Pahinui remains hospitalized at the Queen's Medical Center Tuesday night, after under going lung surgery due to chemical exposure during the Vietnam war and years of smoking.

Pahinui's wife says he is in the ICU, so flowers are not allowed. However, she says people can show their support by listening to Hawaiian music.

Many people are also expressing their love and sharing prayers on his Facebook page, hoping to celebrate his recovery at the Gabby Pahinui Kani Kapila on April 23 at Waimanalo Beach.
