I hope he can manage to recover from this.

Re: Jeff Conaway our prayers are with you

On Claudia's Facebook page she says that he is brain dead. Since I haven't been able to find this in any news items, I'm assuming it's info from the family. This doesn't look good.

Re: Jeff Conaway our prayers are with you

I just read about this a little bit ago. Sad news indeed.

Re: Jeff Conaway our prayers are with you

Just read on the net that he is actually suffering from pneumonia with sepsis. He is currently in an induced coma and is expected to recover. So, Claudia Christian should be more careful what she tweets.

Re: Jeff Conaway our prayers are with you

I hope the report is right but...'Dr. Drew' also was tweeting from what I read. Is this really supposed to be information to trust? And pneumonia was part of some of the reports I'd already read. The part I hadn't heard was that the coma was induced.

Re: Jeff Conaway our prayers are with you

Inducing coma is done to prevent, or reduce, injury to the brain, while it recovers. Let's hope Jeff pulls through, and gets a part in a B5 big screen movie!

Re: Jeff Conaway our prayers are with you

This report would seem to support Claudia Christian's tweet, that there has been no brain activity since he arrived at the hospital.

Jeff's family now wish to turn off his life support machine.....but they do not appear to hold power of attorney.

A very sad state of affairs.

Re: Jeff Conaway our prayers are with you

That site sickens me. There's a targeted ad for some drug/alcohol intervention company plastered right on Jeff's picture. Has the concept of good taste been completely lost in our society?

ETA: Apparently the targeted ad rotates. I've seen the intervention company twice and a 'turn your computer into a TV' ad once. Still gag-worthy, especially given the circumstances.
