Do the docs think the brain damage will be permanent? I pray he makes a full and miraculous recovery.
The doctors don't know the full extant of the damage caused to his brain, as well as to his kidneys and liver. He's still in very critical condition. Despite the brain damage, he's able to move his head a bit, and seems responsive to peoples voices. They've done what surgery they can, now we just wait, and pray that he recovers and that no infections set in to complicate things.
Don't give up hope. My cousin had one side of his head caved in by a robber a couple of years ago, and his brain has compensated somehow. He is basically OK mentally now, but he does have a little trouble talking sometimes. IIRC, they said the brain can kinda reroute stuff to compensate for damage or something like that.
Dead Bears, the only good kind.
