I made it up to the hospital to see him Friday evening before visiting hours
were over. I did get to see him. I said my goodbyes. He had been sent for
a CT before I arrived. The results of the CT were given to his family
yesterday morning. He is brain-dead. His family has gathered and I'm sure
it is just a matter of time before the remove the respirator. I won't be
going back up. He was always such a jovial, fun person and to see him like
he is again I just can't do it, I'm glad I said my goodbyes on Friday. All
the department is supporting the family and doing what we can for them.
Please continue to pray for them, to give them strength during this time as
they have some very hard decisions to make. Thank you to everyone for their
prayers and good thoughts.
