Hogan Pal

Could Spend Life

'In Nursing Home,' Says Doc

10/9/2007 3:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The prognosis is looking grim for John Graziano, the ex-Marine and friend of Nick Hogan's who was severely injured in their crash, according to a new court filing.

Click to read!
In a report filed by registered nurse Joanne Jones and first reported by the St. Petersburg Times, she says that Graziano responds only to a pinch and has a gag reflex, but doesn't respond to touch or sound.

His pupils are fixed and don't respond to light. According to Jones, Graziano's doctor says that his prognosis "remains guarded" and that John, 22, will "most likely spend the remainder of his life in a nursing home." John was also described as "comatose" and "on total life support."

Jones was hired by the Pinellas County court to determine Graziano's condition because his father, Edward Graziano, is seeking an independent guardian for his son.A hearing is set in St. Petersburg for tomorrow morning.

UPDATE: The clerk of the Pinellas County court tells TMZ that prior to the start of the hearing tomorrow morning, Judge Lauren Laughlin will hear arguments on a motion to continue the case until a later date by John's father Edward Graziano.

HOGAN - TAKE THOSE CREDIT CARDS AWAY AND CHECKBOOK. GO TO CHURCH THE BOTH OF YOU - WHAT A SHAME THAT BOTH OF YOU ARE SHOPPING... SHAME SHAME SHAME.... NICK HOGAN MUST PAY FOR HIS CONSEQUENCES... (PUT HIM INJAIL FOR SOME TIME)... HE SHUD NOT BE WALKING AROUND HAVING A GRAND TIME WHEN HIS FRIEND HAD GONE TO IRAQ TO SERVE ALL OF US ENDS UP THIS WAY WITH THIS LITTLE KID RACING. THAT WAS NICK HOGAN RESPONSIBILITY TO TELL HIS FRIEND TO PUT THE SEAT BELT. WHEN I DRIVE, WHEN SOMEONE IS ON THE PASSENGER SEAt, i ask them TO WEAR THEIR SEATBELT... NICK SHUD HAVE DONE THE SAME THING.,.. ALL THIS ACCIDENT IS NICK'S FAULT...

People, for the love of other people, don't drink and drive! And wear your seatbelt. This should show, once again, the results of what happens when people do this.

My prayers go out to the Graziano family, and in all honesty, hopefully Nick faces serious consequences with the judge.

Nick Hogan should go to jail for hurting someone that bad because of his stupid behavior. He's a spoiled little ass.

So sad. The Hogan's should have been more concerned with not raising a self-absorbed, spoiled, BRAT like Nick rather than their poor daughter's virginity. Watch the show, Nick thinks he's so cool and has no idea what a Tool he comes off as. The whole family is so TACKY. He is such an ass. Linda should have spent more time making him into a better person rather on applying more makeup.

I don't ever want to see Nicks face again! Seeing him makes me sick and angry!!! and his parents are much to blame for the way they have/are raising their kids. I hope all the tapes of their show are burned and never to be seen again. Thanks for letting me vent!!
