Hi family! I have not been around much because my wife's brother was rushed into surgery Wednesday evening with a perforated bowel. He has Septic in his blood and had for 3 days! :shock: He was in stage 2 shock when he came in Wednesday. Thursday, they gave him only a 20% chance of survival, and the family was really down. :cry: They removed 75% of his small intestine. He is still in a Dr. induced coma, and is still split open from his sternum to his belly button with a pump to remove the toxins and try to purify his organs of the toxins.

I am typing this from the hospital at a public computer. Please, send your thoughts and prayers, hope to our family.....

Be checking in more often in the coming days. Thanks all! :wink:

oh my goodness. I'm so sorry to hear this news. If someone hasn't already done so, you may want to start a caringbridge site to keep your loved ones updated on your brother in law's progress and condition. I know it can be very straining to answer all the same questions a hundred times for different people...

The website is www.caringbridge.org

if you want to see an example you can go to the one that I did for my nephew, you can type in xavierfoxceja where it says "enter website name"

It's pretty nice site and it has a place so that all the well wishers can leave comments and you can provide updates as often as needed.

I hope this helps make a difficult time just a little bit easier for your family.

Paul, I am so very sorry hearing about your relative. My mother-in-law passed away 1 1/2 years ago. She had a massive stroke, then developed sepses. It is very debilitating and everything happened so fast and unexpectedly. I will pray for your family. I have learned to pray for God's infinite mercy and wisdom in these matters, and to trust that God knows what is best.

Good Luck my friend.

Thanks everyone. He has one more surgery this Thursday to close him up. He is doing better. The blood infection is about gone and his organs appear to be starting to function again. He is still in a semi conscious coma and will be that way until after his final surgery Thursday. I'll mention to him all the well-wishers here at the forum. Thank each and every one of you! :wink:

Paul
