Hello

Sorry for not posting for awhile... it's been pretty stressful.  Bro went into cardiac arrest after he was released from ICU into a ward.  Some how his food tube became dislodged and sent the food into his lungs...yeah.  He was doing really good there, but something went wrong.  He is now back in the ICU and we are starting this crap all over again. 

Today they took him off the ventilator and he is breathing on his own.  They had to drain all the that shit out of his lungs first.  God only knows how much damage that did to his heart and lungs.  He was awake yesterday and I got to talk to him several times ..but he is so weak and is still coming out of this second event.

Will fill you in this weekend....I'm so tired all the time...just from thinking.  I just want to sleep and not think.

Joan

Oh Joan, I know that feeling of wanting to sleep and not think. I'm still praying for Garry and all of you. Take care of you also! ((hugs))

The same thing (sort of) happened to Fred--it was liquid food and they had to start all over cleaning out his lungs. Then he went into AFIB and they had to shock his heart back into sinus rhythm--but Joan, he's still here. Praying for Garry and you.
