      From Jerry's daughter (Tanya) : there is not much change in his condition tonight. We have been waiting all day for a MRI and CAT scan to be done but they are still unable to get him down there for those. He is not awake and is non-responsive. The facial surgery went well. The trac went in great and he now has a PEC tube (for feeding). We really want to see some neurolocial improvements but so far there haven't been any promising signs. A lady we have meet here encouraged us by telling us about her son who has been here for 14 days and just woke up and is improving rapidly (talking, joking, moving). We can only hope the same for dad. Thank you all for your prayers and messages. They are also very encouraging. It is nice to know how loved my dad is.
