In her update, she says Ahmad will undergo another surgery in the days ahead that will keep him hospitalized another six to eight weeks. She says her family is slowing working in the meantime, to bring him home to continue his recovery.
The family extended their thanks for all of the support the family is receiving.
Ahmad was practicing front headlocks on June 21 for a national tournament when the injury occurred. Ahmad suffered brain damage as a result of the stroke.
