Oh doc. I feel the pain. Will definitely keep him and all of your family in my prayers. Don't underestimate the power of prayer. It's helped get me through a lot of tough days.

The doctors are saying he has less than 2% chance of regaining consciousness, and that chances are he would be in a vegetative state if he does come out of it. Doctors have been wrong before. Tonight they recommended removing life support tomorrow if he does not come out of it. Tough call for the family. So sad.
Thank you all for you good thoughts and prayers.

Not the type of news anyone wants to hear. I'm so sorry for all of your family.

Thank you all so much for your kind words, good thoughts and prayers. Devon never regained consciousness, he passed a short while ago. He was an organ donor so some might live on after his passing. My heart goes out to his mom and dad. So sad. A young life taken way to soon. Again, Thanks to you all for showing you care.
