Laurie Alessi gave this update on Facebook : “Dr was in and although he is progressing he is still very internally swollen and bruised. Drainage tube is out. Vocal chord still not moving but his voice is actually ok. Time will tell on that. Not much can be done about that right now . He can talk but isn’t supposed to for at least a week preferably 2 to aid in the swelling coming down. Imagine a 16 year old not talking! He isn’t where he needs to be in order to come home safely. So we are looking at Wednesday now. Not what we were hoping for but better to be here and be safe than sorry. Keep those prayers coming thank u for the outpouring of love we have received this past week. We truly appreciate everything everyone has done for our family ! Way to many names to list!”
