(CARROLLTON) – Chip Bloecher, elementary school principal at Carrollton Christian Academy, remains unconscious in Arlington Memorial Hospital after passing out in his truck during the Cowboys game on September 19.
Tube is out and he is talking, but sparsly, he is sore. He has asked to go home, watch football. He needs to cough, remain calm and breathe deep. Please note visitors are limited to family, we do welcome you to ICU West to rejoice! Your continued prayers are requested!
Bloecher, 37, has battled kidney failure, pneumonia, and cardiac arrhythmia since suffering a massive heat stroke in the Cowboys parking lot. A family friend stated that Bloecher’s physical condition is improving, but doctors are unsure how much cognitive damage has been sustained. A transfer to UT Southwestern’s brain trauma unit will likely occur as soon as arrangements are finalized.
The following was posted on the Pray For Chip Bloecher Facebook page today, September 27th: “Chip had an uneventful night. It looked like he rested well. He did have a temperature most of the night. Still have not heard anything about the transfer, will post when more is known. Please pray for continued rest and healing and a safe transfer today. Thank you!”
