BMX star and MTV Host TJ Lavin is beginning to show signs of improvement after waking up from his coma. According to E! Online, Lavin regained consciousness and has begun breathing on his own.
On Thursday the hospital where Lavin is staying took out his feeding tube and he’s begun to mumble some words, including answering questions from doctors, family and friends.
TJ’s friend Chas Aday told People ”
“He’s answering questions” and “He’ll say ‘yes’ a little bit and he knows where he is, but he’s not opening his eyes yet.”
While Lavin suffered a shattered wrist, doctors say he will not likely suffer any brain damage which was a major area of concern when the accident occurred due to the possibility of brain swelling which forced doctors to put TJ into a medically induced coma.
Our thoughts go out to Lavin for a speedy recovery!
