My dad took my brother to the ER this morning because he had been having cheast pains for about two days, and he wasn't getting an better. He went downhill fast shortly after they arrived......long story short, he had a massive coronary right there, and his heart stopped for about five minutes. His was a ventricular attack......the only reason he survived was because he happened to be in the ER of a fine hospital at the time.

So, they installed a stent, and everything appared to be fine. They were concerned about brain damage, due to the amount of time his brain went without blood. Before he left, a nurse told our dad that looking at his puplis, he looked to be coming around normally......no brain damage, as we understood.

I just got off the phone with my dad an hour ago, and the hospital called him. My brother is having seizures.....signs are showing brain damage.
He is now on life support.

The guy means the world to me. I've never felt so ****ing helpless in my life. Please send your best thoughts to my big brother.

Speechless SwAMi. My thoughts are with your brother, you and the rest of your family. Difficult times and a rollercoaster on the emotions but keep the faith that he'll come out of this 100% with time.

Dad just called back.......the hospital called, and he's slipping. They're going to install a catheter (sp?) as a last ditch effort. Things are not looking good.

This is a nightmare.
