After his emergency surgery, Lem was put into a medically induced coma and sedated to keep his brain resting. The next day, he was transported via medical helicopter from our small town of Medford to Portland in order to treat his condition. Today, the 9th of January, was the day that Lem had an angiogram as well as a another craniotomy in order to remove the AVM and prevent any future hemorrhages from occurring.
Doctors are now waiting for Lem to wake up out of his coma, and are hopeful that he will make it past this tragedy. Needless to say, there is a long and difficult road ahead that Lem will have to overcome before he will be able to talk, walk and eventually return to living a normal life. His medical bills will probably be through the roof, so every penny will help ease the unfortunately immense financial burden that awaits Lem and his family.
We are all hoping for the absolute best, and any signs of progress will see themselves posted here for those who may be interested. Donations of any amount would help Lem's situation immensely, and keeping this wonderful young man who has so much to live for in your prayers would be especially fantastic.
