Pursley had his surgery on Sunday, according to a FaceBook post by Daison mother Shawnda, “Surgery went well on fusing C3 to C5, the spinal cord was aggravated a little more than she thought it would be…he is going to stay on the ventilator for the night so he can get some rest… We will continue to monitor swelling and contusion on the spinal cord and see if tingling in body subsided and movement starts to improve more.”
