Good that he seems not to have had to stay in the hospital any longer. I hope you'll have a good time with him at Roland Garros, but yes, the most important thing is his health. No more retirement because of injury, better to lose a match without any pain though I don't wish him to lose any matches of course.
It's terrible to see the ATP ranking now. His points are less and less... after Indian Wells he'll have 165 points and after Monte Carlo only 75 pts, 10 pts from Wimbledon, 20 pts from Umag and 45 pts from Shanghai. That means he needs a wild card to main draw for not only every ATP-level tournament, but also for some big Challenger ones, maybe also for middle Challenger ones... I think it would be not problematic for him to get a wild card for Barcelona, Madrid, maybe also Bastad and Challengers but I don't know... I can only wish him all the best.
I hope and wish he'll get well soon and play as soon as possible, but I think it could be better for him that he'll come back when he'll be able to use his "protected ranking" in order to entry into the 250, 500, 1000 tournaments and Grand Slams. All not easy unfortunately...
