Damar Hamlin is off the ventilator

[ Edited ]

Damar Hamlin is off the ventilator and is able to speak now. Good news. He was able to place a call to his teammates. It was a video call.

My hope is that he somehow had very minimal damage done to his heart and lungs. It appears, from what I have heard that doctors have said, his cognitive skills seem to be pretty good.

 

I know it's pretty early, but from where he was, to where he is now! Seems like a very long way in his recovery.

Recovering from chest trauma after aggressive CPR is a major deal; cracked sternum, broken ribs, major bruising, etc.

Re: Damar Hamlin is off the ventilator

If anybody would recover, you'd think it would be a very fit 24 year old guy.....so, of course, this is great news. He seems like such a nice guy, too ( based on video footage they keep showing on the news). This is great news for the guy that tackled him, too. My heart totally went out to him.
