LEWISTON — Jordan Norwood, who was struck by an SUV on Aug. 15, is alert, able to get out of bed and is showing improvement after three surgeries.
The 11-year-old boy has been receiving occupational and speech therapy to test and strengthen his motor skills, but he is still moving a little slower than usual, according to his father, Norman Norwood. He is alert and awake, but his eyes are not fully functional. The extent of any brain damage is still unknown.
Friends and family are welcome to visit, and Norwood is appreciative of the prayers and well-wishes from all across the state. “This is the kind of story that restores your faith in humanity,” he said.
Jordan was riding his bike on Tall Pines Drive when the collision occurred. He was flown to Maine Medical Center in Portland, where he is expected to remain for another three to four weeks.
