A short update on Ben. So Ben is out of his coma and very slowly regaining consciousness. If you have been following updates on Facebook then you know that he has been opening his eyes a little bit and following, with difficulty, some commands. He is going to need months of therapy, but then we hope he will be alright. Thanks everyone so much for your kindness!
Update on Ben: It has been over ten days now since Ben fell off his longboard.
We got his MRI results back today, and the doctor said that there isn't much change. The internal bleeding in his brain has lessened a bit.
Mary said that Ben has raised his left arm a couple of times a little today, and that when the nurses put ointment in his eyes, he opened them for a moment. She said that he also twitched his shoulder.
The doctor said that Ben's neck is quite stiff from his neck brace, so they are going to put a softer one on him.
This is the first day that Ben has really moved at all, so I think that he has begun to wake up. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. If he does wake up, the process should take three or four days, since the medications are working their way out of his system.
Another way you can help support Ben is by participating in this "Book Bomb" You can learn more about it and even what it is by following the link below. I must thank everyone so much for your kindness. If I could come serenade each and everyone of you with my tuba over a romantic candle lite dinner I would.
Ben Wolverton, age 16, was in a long-boarding accident on Wednesday the 3th, 2013. After falling off his board, he suffered from severe brain trauma as well as a cracked skull, broken pelvis, broken tail bone, burnt knees, bruised lungs, broken ear drum, as well as road rash and many scars. He is currently stable, but in a coma.
Ben is a straight-A student, very athletic, and is well liked by all that know him.
His family has no insurance, and the bills for the hospital and treatment in this instance often exceed a million dollars, but we are starting out low, hoping that he will recover quickly. Any donations are greatly appreciated.
