Forums General Melanoma Community Upate on Jerry….. Re: Upate on Jerry…..


      UPDATE on Jerry: Neuro was quite upset about the sediation levels dad is being kept at. They have told trauma to wean him immediately so they can do a neuro assessment. His breathing test went well (over 2 hours). So far his other issues are clearing up. His facial fractures have been repaired. His lungs are sounding great. His abrasions are healing. Neurologically, there has been no responses other than to pain. He can not follow any commands, open eyes, nod, wiggle toes, ect.  Pray that he will wake up soon and that his neuro eval goes well!

      Thank you for the posts, emails, phone calls, and lunch (Laura!). You have all been great.
