I spoke with my brother last night. Nephew continues to respond to verbal commands. Additionally, he is wiggling both his fingers & his toes. The doctors are amazed yet state that his youth is working for him. They took nephew to surgery for his jaw yesterday (it's broken in 4 places). The leg, shoulder & ribs will wait until a later date. He is still being kept heavily sedated & is wearing one of those halos to keep his neck in place. It looks like nephew will be in rehab for a very long time once he is totally stabilized. There is concern for the brain trauma due to his injuries & the strokes he suffered. My older brother, who is a rehab director at a different facility, contacted his old friend where nephew will rehab & asked for a complete evaluation when appropriate. You are a powerful group of friends - all the prayers & good thoughts have made a difference. It's still a tenuous situation but things are looking much better.
