Default Update post #41 - Prayers please for my brother

My oldest brother who will be 68 in January slipped on the ice this morning and hit his head. He has a small area of bleeding on the brain and right now is in ICU under very heavy sedation. They will doing another round of tests in the morning and if necessary, they will insert a drain to relieve the pressure.

His doctors are very confident he will have little or no long term effects from this, but the next few days are very scary for us and, of course, with a head injury, anything can happen. They don't want anyone talking to him or doing anything that would cause him to want to be awake and alert - just want to let him rest.

One of the really awful parts of this is that he's in the same ICU, just a few rooms away actually, from where my niece (his daughter) died in 1992. My nephew said when he walked through the doors into that part of the hospital, that memory came back to him like a slap in the face. My sister-in-law is so incredibly strong and is hanging in there, but this is very hard on both her and my nephew.

Please keep them all in your thoughts and pray for good news in the morning!
Sweetness and Tessa

Hi Maggie,

I am keeping your brother and the family in my prayers! Sounds like he's got a good prognosis, but I know it's still scary
