Tracy Stuffle, one of the founding members of acclaimed Southern Gospel vocal group, The Perrys, suffered a stroke early last month.
His wife Libbi has been updating the band's Facebook page with news on Tracy's recovery. The last two days Tracy's crania pressure has spike, far exceeding healthy amounts. A good pressure is 0-5 where Tracy's was 27 earlier this morning.
Keeping his room completely silent today, not to stimulate him in an attempt to lower his ICP, slowly Tracy's pressure level lowered. With Tracy on a 3% sodium drip, Libbi posted this encouraging update.
Just talked to Neuro Dr Darice and Tracy's ICP is 13!! Down from 27!!! Gonna increase the sodium IV treatment to try to absorb more fluid. She said he is very sensitive to any lights and sounds. But, they have him sedated as much as the blood pressure will allow.
Even on days where the updates seem optimistic, "Sweet Tracy" and those taking care of Tracy need all the love and support you can offer. Whether it's a prayer every night before bed or a simple comment on the band's Facebook page, every little bit helps.
