WWE: Jerry Lawler afternoon update, ex-wife gives some news

Stacy Carter, the former wife of Jerry Lawler, just made a post, which is consistent with what we've been hearing. 

"The docs are removing his ventilation and taking him out of sedation.  He is responsive, which is great!!!  It took a while to revive him last night so there's the concern of brain damage.  He had some tests done which will show how much if any damage there is due to the lack of oxygen to the brain.  Unfortunately, the results won't be in until the morning.  I appreciate all the calls, texts, tweets and Facebook messages of support and I know Jerry will too."
