MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Siegel High School football player who suffered a severe brain injury during a game last month has been off of a ventilator for five days.
Baylor Bramble’s father wrote the news on his blog late Monday morning.
“Thank you for your consistent and continual prayers,” he wrote. “God has certainly heard your voice and answered our pleas.”
With the success of breathing on his own, David Bramble wrote his son will receive a smaller trach, which will allow the 17-year-old “greater control” and “comfort,” within the next 24 hours.
“Please continue to pray for his breathing and that he will not get any infections or bedsores, he currently has neither,” David Bramble wrote. “We do not deserve your prayers, but you’ll never know how appreciative we are for each and every one that is lifted up.”
Baylor received treatment at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville before he was transferred to a skilled nursing facility earlier this month.
