"He remains in critical condition, fighting pneumonia, a heart infection and irregular pulse,” she said. "The relatively positive prognosis which followed his previous surgery has dimmed…. It is now believed that the hope of recovering upper body function was premature," and that her son "will most likely live out his life as a quadriplegic.” Marston was expected undergo surgery on Wednesday to reduce pressure on the brain, Jackson posted on Facebook.
