More information has been released today on his condition. This morning the doctors removed his breathing tube and he was able to recognize his family and friends. Lowery can also move his arms and legs.Â
One of the best signs was this: according to this tweet from teammate Martavius Neloms, Loweryâ€™s first comment after waking up was a joke about his appearance.Â
RTâ€ť@dougstutsman: @1_step_cl0ser First thing he asked when he woke up:â€ťAm I still pretty?â€ť" Lmao he so silly man.
