View Full Version : My brother.....

January 10th, 2013, 10:36 AM
Please continue to keep my brother in your prayers. They took more x-rays and wouldn't tell us much but the nurse did say it's worse than they thought. He is still on life support. They are hooking it up "a piece" at a time. They started his feeding tube and then later hooked up a machine to keep blood flowing to his heart and oxygen to his brain. He still has a fever and they have to keep a cooling blanket on him to keep the fever down.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

His next of kin has a right to know what is going on. If that is you then you need to demand to speak to the doctor to get some answers. That being said, I am praying for all of you.

The doctor was in and said his condition is getting worse and that his body has rejected the feeding tube and is in shock, but not severe. One bit of good news is that his kidney's aren't shutting down. Thank you for all your prayers.

Shirley, keeping you and your family in prayer. And in my heart I'm surrounding you with love and comfort. Best any of us can do long distance....

Thanks everyone. I just got home from the hospital a little bit ago. The machine is now doing all his breathing for him and his blood is not circulating through his body as it should. He is swollen...I noticed it in his hands first but his face is swollen too. The doctor said that they have seen people in this condition pull through so I can only pray that he does.

January 10th, 2013, 11:12 PM
Sending big hugs and prayers.
