How is your brother doing? I've been thinking about and praying for him over the past week and really hope that he is OK.

Re: ***BensBride***

  • Thank you so much for all the thoughts and prayers!  He is doing somewhat better - his Doctor in Michigan has given us so much hope.  It will be a long road over the next year, but we can be patient.  They have changed his medication and his doctors believe the brain damage is temporary.  Over the past few days he has been much more responsive and is now able to open his eyes and move a little bit.

    He spiked a fever today, but so far nothing indications an infection.

    He should be discharged from Michigan sometime mid-week and they are working on finding an intensive rehabilitation center closer to home.  My mom is beyond relieved that he will be accepted somewhere since his level of care is really too high for her to handle alone right now.  Once there he will receive intense physical, speech and occupation therapy.  

  • I'm so glad to hear he's getting the help he needs and is responding to treatment. I know that must be a huge relief to you all. I'll continue to keep him in my prayers!
