Doctors have decided to wait before bringing the comedian Gallagher out of the medically induced coma he was put in after his heart attack last week in Texas.
Doctors had planned to wake the 65-year-old comedian on Saturday. But his promotional manager, Christine Scherrer, says he was trying to wake on his own. Doctors are keeping him sedated because they want to wake him slowly. She says they may try Sunday.
Scherrer says the comedian had two stents replaced after collapsing Wednesday before a performance at a bar in Lewisville, a Dallas suburb.
When freshman Kayla Gurganus got her head shaved, she received several cheers from the people involved at St. Baldrick’s.
The hall council in Brayton/Clevenger put on the event Saturday on the first floor. St. Baldrick’s is an organization that raises money to help find cures for children with cancer.
Students can either raise money to keep their hair cut or shave it. Gurganus said she received an email about the event last month, but did not know she was going to go through with it until today.
“You’d be surprised how much your hair weighs, I think, and how much you actually have,” she said. “It does definitely feel a lot different.”
