Have bleeding in ears and nose. Had a fall. Had a surgery. What is the chance for survival?

Hey I'm an EMR, and last night I responded to a patient who fell from 25 feet. He made it through surgery last night and the last update I had said that he was stable, and his feet responded to pain, but his legs were swelling. When I started medical help his pupils were different sizes and he was bleeding from his ears and nose with no spinal fluid. Just wondering what his chances are?

like be subdeural injury which and there may be pressure on brain leading to neural damage
we expect this becase of size of upils when pupils are dilated there are less chances but hope never ends
you must be on right tract
the usual treatment is on antibiotics to combat infections
maintaiance of vitals
and maintaining the electrolite balance just wait and watch
