. . . . Until they do.
Last Friday, August 29th, my brother was in a motorcycle accident. He sustained massive head trauma. He has been in the N.T.I.C.U. at Herman Memorial Hospital in Houston since that time.
Yesterday, his doctor told us that if he hasn't come out of the coma by Thursday, the family needs to be prepared to either accept along term care solution - i.e. feeding tube and tracheal ventilator, or to disconnect all life support.
I can't imagine anyone ever expects to be put into this position.
How does one decide what to do? Neither choice is appealing.
He has two daughters, 17 and 15.
Anyway, that's where I've been. The kindness shown throughout the blogosphere has been overwhelming.
Thank You all.
