Adams holds onto mother’s hand
T&T defender Akeem Adams remains warded in critical condition at the ICU of the Varosmajori Heart Clinic, in Hungary. But there was one significant occurrence as the 22-year-old player was said to have nodded in acknowledgement of his mother’s presence and held her hand for a brief moment, yesterday morning.
Prior to her departure on Friday, Ancilla Adams did say that she would get a reaction from her ailing son and she got her wish.
“He nodded and held on to her hand when she asked ‘Akeem do you know I am here’ and we continue to pray for his recovery,” his local handler Dion Sosa told TTFA Media on Sunday.
There has been a request originating from the Varosmajori Clinic and Ferencvaros that not too much be said in the media as doctors continue to give the best possible treatment to the player.
“We have to obey their requests as they prefer that not much be said as they try their best to bring Akeem to recovery. They have asked that we continue to extend our support and offer our prayers as they do their part,” Sosa said.
There have been some 250 blood donors to date and doctors are hoping to perform the heart transplant at some point next week.
Ferencvaros lost its league match on Sunday going down to Puskas FC. It is understood that the players have been disheartened since Adams suffered the attack and were not fully up for Saturday’s encounter.
