His doctors offered Grant’s parents the slimmest odds that he would survive the night and suggested to let him go.”
His parents decided to they wanted the doctors to try and save him. He underwent multiple life-saving surgeries, and put on a ventilator and other machines to keep him alive. Eventually, his body became stable, but his brain was still very much damaged. In a deep coma, his doctors told his family they must now, "wait and see" while his brain healed. His mother asked “surely there's something we can do?'" The doctor's response, according to her: "'Nope, there's nothing we can do. We just wait. The brain's got its own time schedule.”

Fish oil for consumption needs to be contaminant free and processed so it will not go rancid, which can actually harm the body and brain. Which fish make up the fish oil is also crucial for obtaining benefits such as herring, sardines, mackerel, anchovies and salmon.
