Following a second brain operation on June 16, Stu Shiffman remains under sedation but is breathing on his own (though still intubated) according to his journal at CaringBridge.
Because he’s sedated, doctors had yet to effectively test the extent of damage or function loss caused by the stroke.
Also reported is that on June 15, the day before his second surgery, Stu managed to get out of bed then fell, breaking one kneecap and possibly his nose as well.
Meantime, many friends are coming together to provide practical support for Stu’s partner, Andi Shecter. Facebook and the CaringBridge page are places to connect and help with that.
