Thursday Update

Greetings from ICU on day 25. Barbara says Jeff stuck his tongue out
twice for her in the past few days. That good news is offset by the
2nd EEG results from Dr Tang. While the brain waves are still
measurably present, Jeff did not respond to stimuli as he did during
the first test. Dr Tang says it is sometimes a month or more before a
patient in Jeff's condition spontaneously opens his eyes. That is the
breakthrough sign we are all hoping for.

Jeff is not responding to my or nurse Jama's requests to move today.
But the staff is taking good care of him. The ventilator is still
required to help him breath. Jeff looks peaceful and clean as he
sleeps in his coma.



  1. My wife and I are praying for Jeff's recovery. Thank you for keeping us updated.

  2. I had heard of Jeff's accident a few weeks ago but just recently found out about this blog to update his condition. I am one of his accounts and have always considered him a genuine person. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  3. Jeff,
    I have only known you for about 5 years now and only through work. I don't know much about you outside of that. But here is what I do are a kind, patient, polite, understanding and thoughtful man. Those are all rare qualities and I am proud to be one of your clients. You are in my daily prayers and I can tell by this blog that you have a lot of support and love around you. That being said, I look forward to buying more wine from you....hopefully sooner than later!
