Rob Grill of the Grass Roots in Critical Condition After Fall

Rob Grill's wife Nancy has written a note to the Topshelf Times website to report on his condition after a recent fall.
Rob fell 3 weeks ago and it was thought he had a subdural hematoma again. He was taken by chopper from Lake County where the CT showed a brain injury (EBI) subarachnoid hemorrhage which is a rupture in the layers of the brain. The did an angiogram to check for an aneurysm which was negative, but he also has pneumonia which is why they put him on a ventilator. He is breathing on his own though so it's not life support, thank God!

That same night he had an Acute Brain Injury (ABI) which is a stroke in his cerebellum. He suffered another in a differt place after that so he really needs our prayers. Send him all the positive light that you can, OK? He has a feeding tube in his nose and he has been in a self induced coma.

I've tried to wake him up, get him to move his feet, anything, but the only thing he's done is yawn and cough. Monday he opened his eyes slightly but they were fixed and did not make contact or track a light or finger. So he's critical, but stable.
The full letter can be seen at The Topshelf Times.

I read on a YahooGroup board that he passed this afternoon.
