Jerry Lawler Responsive, Tests Being Done To Detect Brain Damage

Stacey "The Kat" Carter provided the following update on the condition of Jerry "The King" Lawler on her Facebook page:

I have an update on Jerry. The docs are removing his ventilation & taking him out of sedation. He is responsive, which is great!!! It took a while to revive him last night so there's the concern of brain damage. He had some tests done which will show how much if any damage there is due to the lack of oxygen to his brain. Unfortunately, the results won't be in until in the morning. I appreciate all the calls, texts, tweets, & Facebook messages of support & I know Jerry will too. Thanks everybody!!

Jim Ross noted on his Twitter that Lawler was "stable/battling," writing, "I've had endless thoughts of great memories w/ @JerryLawler & have decided we'll have many more. He's stable/battling. I know he'll be o.k."
