Coleman's Journey 11/03

Last night, Coleman had a second stroke event which wiped out all attempts to reduce inflammation from the first . At this point, after reviewing the progression of CT scans, it was determined that the pressure was high enough to open a part of his skull.
It's about 12:30pm and Coleman just came out of surgery, back to the neuro ICU at Abbott Northwestern hospital. Immediately after removing a sizable piece of his skull, his brain escaped the pressured confines of his head, to fill the space. The piece of skull will be put back in about 6 to 12 weeks. 

He's sporting a fresh partial hair cut. He's ventilated and sedated for at least the next day or two. The breathing tube will be added along with the feeding tube.  While he has these tubes in, he won't be talking. 


  1. I just cannot believe that this is happening to Coleman. Life just is not fair. Sending prayers and good wishes. Congratulations on the engagement. Love to you all! From Pat Phillips and family
