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 an MRI to get a closer picture of just how severe.
On July 6, 2016 the Neurology team met with Jonathan's family to discuss the results of the MRI. The results were not good, explained that Jonathan's injuries were traumatic and very serious, and that he would be monitored for several days to allow time for signs of improvement.
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.
