On Monday, July 4th Jonathan was involved in a serious 3-wheeler ATV accident where he suffered from significant head trauma. When paramedics arrived on the scene Jonathan was unresponsive. Because of this, he was airlifted to HCMC and remained unresponsive after emergency medical care.
In the days to come, Jonathan was monitored closely by a phenomenal Neurology team at HCMC. The Neurology team were clear with family and friends that Jonathan sustained severe brain injury in many areas and that they would be doing tests and an MRI to get a closer picture of just how severe.
July 6th. Jonathan's parents and family met with the Neurology team to view the imagining taken during his MRI and were able to ask the questions that they have so patiently been waiting to ask. The MRI shows great injury to Jonathan's brain that is categorized as irreparable and these types of injuries are severe enough that Jonathan's quality of life would be very limited, pending he continues to breathe on his own when taken off respiratory support. More time will be given to Jonathan to show signs of responsiveness or reactivity.
On July 12th the family met again with the Neurological team to discuss latest test results.
July 14th, as we gathered to say our last goodbyes and to participate in a flag raising honoring event for Jonathan's gift of organ donation, we were told that his neurological doctor had abruptly stopped all of his current prognosis and proceedings. On a daily testing that they had been doing and were still doing on Jonathan had suddenly showed something she had not seen before this. He had slightly opened one eye and reacted to pain prick.
