Cy Update

Hey folks,

I just got this message from Cy's friend Mike Rowe. Cy's hit a bad spot. Here's Mike's message:

I just wanted to let you know that Cy has been admitted to the hospital at Duke South (on Wake Forest Rd) this morning. He was groggy and unresponsive this morning and his parents called an ambulance to take him to the emergency room. They did a CT scan and found some swelling in his brain. They did a procedure to relieve the swelling and may possibly put in a shunt tomorrow to further help with the swelling. They also did a chest x-ray and found that he has pneumonia, which they are going to treat aggressively with the goal of trying to keep him off a respirator.

Right now he is stable and partially responsive but isn't really talking. He can have visitors between the hours of 8am - 6pm, and then again between 8:30 - 11.

Cy's dad wanted everyone to know, and Mike said he'd let me know if there are any updates.
