The past month has been the most excruciating I have ever known but
within it has been Jaspers fight for life. Each day of the first 3
weeks had presented numerous challenges both large and small and he
has shown thus far that he is meeting them. He is now physically stable.
Jasper suffered a major seizure the evening of 2/12/16. The severity of which has left him with anoxic brain injury (this is similar to a stroke). The complexity of this condition and the complete unknown aspect of what lies ahead in terms of recovery is what is being faced at this time. Jasper has weathered the 'neurological storms' that came upon him as a result of this injury. These were very severe and difficult to bear. Doctors stated that these "storms" could last days, weeks, years or never cease. The absolutely wonderful news is his neurological storms have subsided after less than a month and he has been slowly awakening from this state.
He has begun to move both legs, move his eyes ( visual tracking) and to turn his head. Very positive steps forward. He responds to touch and stimuli and a few times- though not yet consistent-we saw a smile......it was beautiful to see!

What we do know is that his recovery is going to be a long road. He is facing years of rehabilitation, initially in a facility equipped to deal with rebuilding his physical and cognitive abilities. This is going to be costly and we need your help. Your generous donations will be used to ensure that Jasper is able to get the care he needs to reclaim his life.
