There has been positive news regarding the status of the daughters of Jay Briscoe who were injured in the tragic accident that took his life.

Friend of the family, Josh Warton went on Facebook live to share an update on Jay Briscoe’s beloved daughters.
Sharing an update on the girls who remain hospitalized, he said:

“Jayleigh, 9, has had pain on and off today. She was fitted for her back brace and sat up on the side of the bed with assistance from staff. She was moved into a wheelchair for about an hour. Unfortunately, she still has the NG tube in place and is unable to eat or drink at this time. They are hoping that tomorrow they can take the tube out so she can eat some real food. She’s still on IV medications and spends most of her days sleeping.
“Gracie, 12, had a rough night with lots of tingling and itching in her lower legs. Today, she started the day with occupational therapy and she has regained feeling in her lower extremities. She is also able to make movements in her lower extremities. She was able to make small movements with her legs by using her thigh muscle. We are so grateful, she was up in a wheelchair multiple times, which she enjoys. All of Gracie’s IV medications have been discontinued at this time and she has been switched over to oral pain medicine. She is still groggy from all the medication and lots of sleeping.
“At this time, rehab is recommended for both girls. Although both girls have improvements today, they both have a long road of recovery ahead of them.”

On Tuesday January 17, it was confirmed that Jay Briscoe had passed away following a car accident in Laurel, Delaware.
A donation page has been opened by a friend of the Pugh family to support them and is listed as “the only campaign that has been approved by the family.”
Everyone at JJA Sport Studio continues to wish all the best to the entire Pugh family during this difficult time.
