Damar Hamlin Awake, ‘Shown Remarkable Improvement’ in Last 24 Hours



Damar Hamlin has been hospitalized after suffering a cardiac arrest during Monday Night Football, but he’s showing improvement.

The Buffalo Bills announced, per the physicians at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, that Hamlin has shown remarkable improvement over the past 24 hours. While Hamlin is still critically ill, he appears to be neurologically intact, his lungs continue to heal and he’s making progress.

NFL Network’s Ian Rappoport reported that Hamlin opened his eyes last night and is responsive, further reporting that he is gripping the hands of those close to him.

The outpouring of support since Hamlin was hospitalized Monday night has been astronomical, with seemingly the entire sporting world expressing its love and prayers for Hamlin. The Hamlin family released a statement expressing their gratitude for all the support.

Hamlin’s Chasing M’s Foundation toy drive fundraiser has raised over $7 million since Monday night, with over 200,000 people donating to the cause — including high-profile NFL players and NFL teams.

Excellent news.

This is fantastic news! There are two ways to measure how the brain is doing- structurally and functionally. Structure can be assessed through CT and MRI imaging (MRI is better for looking at brain tissue). Function is more important and is best evaluated through the exam. Brainstem reflexes on days 1,3, and 5 are important. Being able to follow commands is extremely powerful. That shows that he can understand what is being asked and have the motor strength to do it. Continued prayers to him!
