Update on my brother Brian:
Things are not looking good. The critical care doctor sat my parents and me down this afternoon to let us know that they do not expect Brian to make it. Early tests indicated swelling to the brain, damage to the lungs, and no sign of brain activity. They can't do any further testing on him until the warming process is finished. They started warming him up at 2:30 and is projected to be done at 6am. They've had trouble with his oxygen levels, blood Pressure levels, and have him on the highest doses possible. However, he is still holding on and fighting. He suffered a mild heart attack due to lack of oxygen during the accident and the doctors are treating him for a pulmonary embolism that they can't actually test for because of his condition. Neurologist says there's a 99% chance he will not make it and if he does, he'll be in a nursing home with 24 hour care. To say it's been a trying day would be laughable.
I say all that to say this: we believe in prayer and the One to whom we pray. Miracles happen everyday and that's exactly what we need here. Please if you have a moment today, get on your knees in prayer for my brother. He desperately needs them. Thank you!
Jer, I miss you. I don't know who to cry to and it's hard to face this dark time without my biggest support. And yet I still feel you around. So many people have come up to support and half of them have been my friends who don't even know Brian well. I feel you in that overwhelming support.
I'm tired. I'm aching. I'm scared. I'm weak. I'm overwhelmed. I believe that God has the power to heal Brian but I don't know what he's waiting for.
I'm waiting for peace and a good nights sleep. If I could find you there beneath my eye lids tonight, that would be a great comfort.
I miss you tonight babe. Please keep fighting for Brian
I love you forever
