    This update was posted on Reddit r/LonghornNation this morning:

    CaringBridge is a website that allows the site owner to communicate with the outside world on a patient's health journey. You can register for free (just requires an email address) to stay abreast of Derrian's status:

    Here are the updates so far:

    February 2, 3 AM: "Good morning, Derrian is scheduled for surgery at 7:00 am this morning to reduce the swelling. we will provide an update once we have more information, Please pray for Derrian and the doctors. Thank you- The Brown Family love you and thank you for all your prayers!"

    February 2, 9 AM: "Hello, update on Derrian He is out of surgery everything went well, the doctor said his brain did exactly what he wanted it to do. So now we pray harder, that nothing interferes in this healing. Thank you ALL for the prays and support We love you ALL"

    February 2, 5 PM: "#DerrianStrong so our super man, has been doing well since the surgery. He is reacting to all commands. He's not liking the intubation tube and even broke through restraints to pull it out. Proven to everyone how strong he is. Always having to show out, but that's my baby."

    February 2, 10 PM: "Update: Derrian is doing very good tonight. He made his momma so happy, I walked into his room to say goodnight and he was raising his arm, and leg. And those BIG!!! bright eyes was looking at me. just made my night!!! I love you DB#3 #DerrianStrong"

    Good stuff, I'm hoping they can find the cause of this and treat it so that he can get back to leading a normal healthy life. He has 4 years to get himself back 100%, who knows if football is in his future, but I know he will have something great to fall back if it isn't.

    I don't know what the rules are but I think it would be really cool to give him a Longhorn helmet he can put in his room for motivation. I doubt he'll ever be allowed to play again but don't know the cause of the clot.

    Anyone know how to go about this?

    Ladies and Gents- sacrificing a weeks worth of Starbucks and donating that money to the Go Fund Me effort is something I am asking we all consider for this young man.
    If The LH Nation all stepped up, even at $5 each, it would cover this expense at no real sacrifice to us.
