  • Friend in ICU

    He's just out of surgery. I don't know much about the current situation. Probably heart related as he has an ongoing set of heart issues. Please pray for him.

    And me - it is not okay that I'm more mad at him than worried about him. Stupid male of the species refusing to take proper care of himself and ... And it's never as easy to do as to say. We all have those things we have a hard time facing or dealing with. But he'll leave behind three kids, two still in the home, and a ditz of a wife (love her, really I usually do) and it will be really hard if they lose him.

              Almost like He knows what it'll be before you do.

                Thanks everyone.



                Details are still sketchy. Evidentially he's in or going to UAB and his intestines have died in some areas. I'm guessing that's what the surgery was for.

                  So, he was supposedly doing better but now things are looking bad. No details but it's probably really bad given who all messaged me.

                  Update: so all I heard was they opened him up and found half his bowel dead. The doctors are evidently asking his wife the 'hard questions'. So yeah, really, really bad.

                    So, he's lost most of his intestines and the doctors aren't sure if he will pull through.

                        Thanks, everyone.

                        He's being transitioned to palliative care.

                          They can't do TPN and put him on a transplant list? Or is there too much wrong?

                            His heart was already in horrible shape and he was not even close to being a candidate.

                            His heart rate is declining now.
