Frazee teenager making progress
Frazee High School student Myrel Schermerhorn, hospitalized after a car accident on Nov. 18, is not yet awake, but his family says he's taking small steps in the right direction.
Schermerhorn was taken off paralytic and sedative drugs Monday, his sister Leah wrote on the family's CaringBridge website. He had been sedated to make breathing with a ventilator easier. His blood pressure medication and nitrous oxide doses have also been lowered.
