Positive Update On Jay Briscoe's Daughters

Latest on Jay Briscoe's daughters following the tragic car accident

In a positive update, family friends revealed that 12-year-old Gracie - one of Jay Briscoe's daughters - has regained feeling in her lower extremities. It was previously noted that she had undergone surgery after not being able to move her legs.

12-year-old Gracie and 9-year-old Jayleigh were in the vehicle with Jay Briscoe in the car accident that tragically took the former ROH World Champion's life on January 17. 

Family friends provided the following update on Friday evening: 

"Jayleigh, 9, has had pain on and off today. She was fitted for her back brace and sat up on the side of the bed with assistance from staff. She was moved into a wheelchair for about an hour. Unfortunately, she still has the NG tube in place and is unable to eat or drink at this time. They are hoping that tomorrow they can take the tube out so she can eat some real food. She's still on IV medications and spends most of her days sleeping.

"Gracie, 12, had a rough night with lots of tingling and itching in her lower legs. Today, she started the day with occupational therapy and she has regained feeling in her lower extremities. She is also able to make movements in her lower extremities. She was able to make small movements with her legs by using her thigh muscle. We are so grateful, she was up in a wheelchair multiple times, which she enjoys. All of Gracie's IV medications have been discontinued at this time and she has been switched over to oral pain medicine. She is still groggy from all the medication and lots of sleeping.

"At this time, rehab is recommended for both girls. Although both girls have improvements today, they both have a long road of recovery ahead of them."

It was also noted that their brother Gannon, Mark Briscoe, and Papa Briscoe were able to visit the girls on Friday. A tribute show in honour of Jay Briscoe was taped following last week's episode of Dynamite and the event will be uploaded for free to HonorClub and the promotion's YouTube channel. Further tributes will be paid to Jay on the first episode of the revived ROH TV show and at Supercard of Honor.
