CEPT: My brother is in the hospital  
I just got a call from my sister-in-law. My brother is in the hospital; he was admitted this morning with pain in his torso and blood pressure that hit 220 systolic and 130 diastolic (although maybe not both at the same time).

If I understood correctly, they think they've ruled out cardiac, and they think they've ruled out kidney, but they're not sure, so he's in Special Care until they figure it out.

Please keep him in your thoughts, prayers, or prayer-analogs.

Why the hell didn't I call him last night when I was thinking of him? Excuse: Because I'm not sure of his work and sleep schedule, and didn't want to wake him up.

Ah good God. I am sorry, Janet. Hope he recovers quickly.

From the briefest perusal of my friends list, it would appear that 2012 is well and truly fired, and it's hardly March yet.

I am absolutely keeping him in my thoughts, and his wife, and you, my friend.

*hugs you warmly*

Don't go down this path. I'll bet you think of him at some point most evenings, but you only remember it because of what's happened. Thinking too much about this will make you crazy. Trust me, I'm battling that thought pattern myself and have been for almost a month.

But of course, yes, I will keep him (and you) in my thoughts. xXx

I will do my best to stay off that path. Thank you for the support; it helps.

fingers crossed and good thoughts, Janet.

GoodThoughts and a candle lit.

(Also seconding ideealisme, about 2012 indeed being well and truly fired. Between my long-distance friends and my local friends and some of my own stuff that I don't really want to go into... just gah.)

Added to my prayer list.

I hope he is back on his feet in a healthy manner in very short order.

Will do.

Hugs for you and prays for him.
Is he still in Phoenix?
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on March 7th, 2012 09:55 am (UTC)
He is, but I'm not sure which hospital; I didn't think to ask.

Good thoughts for your brother. I hope they find out what is causing this so they can treat it.

You didn't call because you were being considerate. It's happenstance. Don't worry about it.

Prayers for your brother, and for you.

I'm so sorry to hear this, Janet. I will be keeping him and you and your family in my prayers.

That's not an excuse. It's a reason, and he would understand, I know he would.

Thinking all good thunks possible in your and his direction.

Prayers and good thoughts sent, to your brother, and you, and your family - you've been in my thoughts.
