There's good news concerning the health of Bay junior running back Carlos Wells as of Tuesday afternoon. Carlos continues to recover from surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain yesterday, and just a few hours ago his condition was upgraded from critical but stable, to fair!
Wells fell ill during a game last Friday at Choctaw, was taken to a hospital in Fort Walton, and then airlifted to Children's Hospital in Birmingham overnight Friday.
That's where the five hour plus surgery took place.
Sports Director Scott Rossman spoke today with Bay coach Frank Sorrells and A.D. Glenn Manley, they told Scott they visited with Carlos this morning, and though he's on a ventilator and can't talk, he did communicate with them, and even hugged them. They said Wells was able to sit up and text some of his friends.
Sorrells saying it was important for them to be with Carlos through this as long as they could, they drove home late this afternoon.
The coach adding this has been a trying experience for everyone involved, he's never dealt with something like this in his coaching career. By the way, eat at Chili's in Panama City Wednesday, 10% of the proceeds go to help the Wells family's medical bills.
