After being discharged from the hospital, Damar Hamlin is now returning home. The Bills made the announcement on Wednesday morning, 10 days after the cardiac arrest occurred during Monday Night Football!
After making remarkable progress in his rehabilitation, 24-year-old Hamlin was flown Monday from Cincinnati’s UC Medical Center to Buffalo General Medical Center.
Hamlin, however, was still a patient there; he was still consuming hospital fare and sleeping in a hospital bed.
That is, until early on Wednesday, when medical professionals claim they decided Hamlin was healthy enough to continue his treatment at home.
Damar’s critical care physician, Jamie Nadler, MD, provided an update on Hamlin’s condition, saying, “We have completed a series of tests and evaluations, and in consultation with the team physicians, we are confident that Damar can be safely discharged to continue his rehabilitation at home and with the Bills.”
Of course, during last week’s MNF game, Hamlin passed out after tackling Bengals receiver Tee Higgins, necessitating on-site CPR and defibrillation.
After being revived, Hamlin was taken to a nearby intensive care unit for medical attention. The situation seemed hopeless at first, but Damar recovered remarkably quickly.
The entire nation supported Damar, and millions of dollars were donated to his charity by tens of thousands of supporters.
Damar, welcome home!
