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.
During the last two days, Tracy's cranial pressure has spiked, far exceeding healthy amounts. A good pressure is 0-5 whereas Tracy's was 27 earlier yesterday morning.
After doctors medically induced Tracy into a coma yesterday afternoon and restricted visitors in an attempt to keep his room completely silent, hoping his ICP would lower as a result, Tracy's intracranial pressure slowly started to return to normal. Though still a little high as of late last night, Libbi posted these encouraging words:
"Fixin to leave the hospital going back to hotel for the night. Tracy's ICP cranial pressure is 10. That's a big improvement from 27 this morning! All his vital signs are good. Thank You Sweet Jesus!!! He's still in a coma. EVD is still draining good. I've stayed out of the room all day til tonight. Just been sitting in the chair watching him. Anointed and prayed over him a few minutes ago. I hate leaving him but there's nothing I can do while he's in a coma.
Thanks to the Kingsmen for stopping by this morning!"
The Perrys also posted a concert flyer for a performance tonight at Oaklawn Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, NC. All proceeds will go toward Tracy's medical expenses via, "A Love Offering." Libbi will even hold a Skype session for those who are attending.
Though Tracy is still in critical condition, and cannot accept visitors, those wanting to send cards and flowers can to the address below:
