Stacy Carter, the ex-wife of Jerry Lawler, says Jerry Lawler is being taken out of sedation and is now responsive after heart procedures Tuesday. The concern now is whether Lawler suffered brain damage Monday night following a heart attack.
Carter's full Facebook statement reads: "I have an update on Jerry. The docs are removing his ventilation & taking him out of sedation. He is responsive, which is great!!! It took a while to revive him last night so there's the concern of brain damage. He had some tests done which will show how much if any damage there is due to the lack of oxygen to his brain. Unfortunately, the results won't be in until in the morning. I appreciate all the calls, texts, tweets, & Facebook messages of support & I know Jerry will too. Thanks everybody!!"
