Update on Jake “The Snake” Roberts’ Condition and Why He Was Put on a Ventilator

Sinn Bodi, who has been with Jake Roberts in Las Vegas all week, wrote the following update on Facebook last night:

“UPDATE on Jake The Snake Roberts: Jake is NOT in a coma! Please don’t believe crappy gossip… Jake still has Phnemonia. He is not getting enough oxygen so he has been sedated and put on a ventilator… (Sedated only because the procedure is painful). Doctors have to wait & see how he responds before they can continue with MRI & other tests as the Ventilator is inhibiting but nessecary… And until the Phnemonia is cleared up it is preventing Docs from seeing what the underlying problems are. Docs can only speculate on how long he will be in this state. ‪#‎GetBetterJake‬ You can leave Jake Get-well-messages on Twitter @JakeSnakeDDT”

We noted before that Jake’s lawyer said in a statement that Jake was induced by doctors into a “coma-like state” in order to effectively treat his pneumonia.
