Hi all, Remember Me???? Have you missed me???
I just wanted to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. My brother is still in ICU. As of today he has a temperature of 101* and his heart is beating out of rythym (160 beats per minute), he has an infection somewhere and they haven't been able to pinpoint where so they are taking cultures and doing an antibiotic bomb to cover his whole body. He is still on the respirator but at 40% oxygen. I still need prayers for him. We can only play the waiting game and I'm not a patient person! I hate this.
This has been very hard for me to deal with. He was always my hero.... My big brother. He has been a fighter his whole life. Years ago he was the one who took me for my first ride on a Harley Davidson (he even did a wheelie going through an intersection and all I saw was sky)- I was hooked after that. He was so cool and my friends loved being around him. He took me to Chicagofest for the 1st time when I was 15 and they had this punching machine and he punched it harder than anyone other person there. I was so proud.
Saturday night was tough for him but I was told that he flipped off the night nurse. A friend of mine told me that heart patients tend to change personalities and I told him that - "That IS my brother'* personality." I didn't read to see if Jeff told you about flipping her off but I feel that if he still has that much fight left in him that there is a good chance he will pull through. I have just about bitten all of my fingernails off. I feel helpless and wish I could do something. I stood over him and talked to him, I even begged him to sit up and argue with us. They have him paralyzed & sedated still but they say he can hear us.
Sorry about the long post but i just wanted to catch you up to speed. I have missed you all so much and have thought alot about my BC family.
