According to the Facebook page Prayers and Support for Cody Hollums, doctors at East Texas Medical Center in Tyler have decided to place Cody Hollums into a medically-induced coma.
The sedation -- which could last anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks -- is meant to help Hollums' brain recover from the traumatic injuries he suffered at a Championship Bull Riding event at the George Henderson Exposition Center in Lufkin on October 6th.
Hollums was protecting a cowboy who had been thrown from a bull when the bull stepped on him and kicked him in the head.
Hollums has remained unconscious since he was injured.
A fund has been set up for Hollums' benefit at Community National Bank.
If you'd like to add to this fund, please send donations to the following address.
