Update This Evening On My Brother

Thursday, December 27, 2012

I talked to the nurse this evening. They were suppose to do test on my brothers brain to see its function and if there was some damage. As of now he isn't responding to anything. The CT Scan was mostly inconclusive. When they disconnected his life support in order to do the scan he started to struggle for breath by moving his head and shoulders. They couldn't tell if he had any strokes or damage, but they were able to tell he has fluid building up on his brain. The EEG had not come back. Tomorrow morning hopefully I will find out something. The nurse was not very hopeful sounding. She said they were trying to make him comfortable now. I thanked her and all the others for their care for him. She said they were doing their very best for him. But she was trying to prepare me for the worst in a very gentle way. I have been so full in my heart about James's situation. It is very hard for all of us to have him in this terrible state. Not being able to go up to see him is very difficult for me. I have to leave him in the LORD's care and hands. Faith that GOD is in control and knows what is best is the only thing that keeps me together. Thanks from me and my family for all that are praying for James. Your prayers are very important to him right now.

    I am sorry to hear about your brother. I am praying for your family and James. The doctors and nurses are in God's hands and James is in God's care. Please keep us informed. I have asked a few friends to keep James in prayer as well.
