Bruce Felps, the writer, editor and publisher of EastDallasTimes.com who also writes commentary  for NBCDFW.com is currently in a coma.

Felps, 55, suffered a brain aneurysm Wednesday night. According to his sister, Kathy, he was in a coma when he arrived at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas and not expected to make it through the night.

(We know Bruce; he doesn't care what doctors think.)

According to the CaringBridge.org page set up so his sister can keep family and friends updated, doctors were able to remove some fluid from his brain on Thursday and he was somewhat stabilized.

Felps' nurse told his sister that doctors would know something about his prognosis in five to seven days.

Felps is currently in the intensive care unit. His sister posted on his Facebook page, "No idea of when and if he will come out, so that's where your prayers come in!"

We can tell you the prayers of NBCDFW and NBC 5 are with Bruce and his family.
