#darts Will this argument ever go away?

People tend to forget that many of the sports that they now glorify share a history that deeply involved cigarets and beer in dugouts and on sidelines.

10/3/2012 Chris Helms recovery update #darts #ADO

You all are awesome! The Fundrazr account is going up, now about $1400 and I deposited the first mailed check. Got another $200, in the mail, today. I am picking up more, tonight. Also, know of 2 more benefits, out of Texas. When I get the info, I will send it out. Oh, another local benefit will be at Parks Place, in Dallas, this Sunday, I think. Okay, on to the important info:
Anita texted me, early this morning, that Chris was opening his eyes when they were doing stimulus tests, but not by voice command. I just got another text saying that he was resting, but unconscious. It is his brain healing and it takes time. But things are progressing.

Here is an update from about 4 hours ago, from Chris's sister:
A brief update about my brother, Christopher Shawn Helms:
Although still in ICU at University Hospital, he continues to make a little progress each day. The nurses told us this morning that he is opening his eyes now in response to stimulus, but isn't doing it yet when asked. Baby steps, but progress is progress!

Please keep the prayers and good wishes coming his way - they are working!!

Also, Friday will be his birthday. If you would like to send a card you can drop it off in his room during a visit or mail it to: 327 Devonshire, San Antonio, TX 78209

On a personal note, sending out my love and appreciation to all of the people who have reached out to Chris and all of our family during this crisis. It has been such a blessing to meet so many well-wishers and generous friends over this past week, either at the hospital or via phone, text and facebook. Hearing or reading so many great stories about my brother, from his compassion to his hilarious antics, has been very uplifting and has made the many long hours of waiting much more bearable.

There are several people who have REALLY stepped up and continue to volunteer their time and energy to helping Chris and the family through this, above and beyond what any of us could have anticipated. 'Thank you' isn't sufficient, but all I have are words to express the depth of our gratitude to each and every one of you.

#darts The latest from Chris Helm's sister

My brother - Christopher UPDATE Monday 10/1 -
Would you like to send Chris a card? Mail to:
327 Devonshire San Antonio, TX 78209

His condition remains unchanged from yesterday. So keep praying, share your stories, come by to visit if you like.

Update from our little sis, Chandalee:

" He has been moved to room 1072 (still in ICU). No significant changes one way or the other from the doctors' perspective but friends are reporting that he has been moving his fingers some and moving his lips too. One tiny step closer to consciousness and having him closer to recovery.

Thank you all again for the outpouring of love, support and prayers we have seen from everyone. I can't tell you enough how much it has meant to the family and I know it is helping Chris pull through this. "

ditto ♥

In addition, Anita says that they plan to do the trach and add a stomach feeding tube, in order to get the tubes out of his mouth, sometime, today. Biggest thing is still waiting to get that swelling down.
