Nathaniel Marston's mother, Elizabeth Jackson, has posted an update on her son's recovery on her Facebook page. "Nate was able to decide and express very clearly this [morning] that he is not going to give up without a fight," she wrote. "He is going into surgery at [3:00] this afternoon. The goal is to get him breathing on his own. The Dr said that there is a good chance that he will recover the use of upper body movement and a slim chance that he will walk again. Recovery will take 2 or more years but where there is life there is hope. Nate has never walked away from a fight and he is determined to win this one…. Both Nate and I appreciate your love prayers and support."
