August 11, 2015 - Neurologist Plan

Last night was uneventful and his vitals were stable. We heard from the neurologist that their recommendation was to keep Perry sedated for 48 hours without any seizures. He is on 2 anti-seizure medications and 1 sedative that assist with with seizures currently. 48 hours would be 6 PM ET today without any seizures. However, they would prefer to start weaning him off of the sedative now so he can have the entire day staff available to monitor him and we can have most of the specialists in the hospital at a moment's notice should any complications/concerns arise. Weaning off the sedative can take a few hours.

Today is a very big day, so please pray for response to commands, recognition and comfort of his family, his fears be eased and no additional setbacks. Thank you all again.


We have established a designated fund (“Perry’s Transplant Fund”) for those of you wishing to provide financial assistance to cover Perry’s enormous and mounting medical, housing and rehabilitation expenses. We appreciate everyone’s concern and generosity in this time of great need. Any amount that you can give would be a huge support for Perry and his family. Every little bit helps!  

You can make credit card donations on the "Donations" tab above.  Checks can be made payable to “Perry’s Transplant Fund” and can be sent to the following address :

Perry's Transplant Fund  c/o Nick J. DiGiovanni

22050 Coriander Lane

Frankfort, IL 60423

Thank you all again for your prayers and continued support to this point and all future well wishes to come. Perry and his entire family truly have a tremendous support group!
