Tending Brigid's flame


« on: August 20, 2013, 06:21:03 AM »

My brother-in-law Leslie is currently in ICU, his drinking problem offsetting an infection, and unlikely to recover. Please take a moment to remember him in your prayers, so his end, if that is God's will, may be peaceful.

Thank you all, your prayers have been heeded. Against early prognosis, he seems to be making a slow but satisfactory recovery. He was unconscious for several days, and the doctors feared brain damage, but now he has regained consciousness and it doesn't look as bad. He has a tracheotomy, his lungs and kidneys are in a bad way, and he is in for a long hospital stay (at least another month). On the upside, that may be just what he needs to kick the drinking habit. Please continue to pray for the best outcome for himself and his family, and especially for his mother Dorothy, who is shouldering most of the responsibility.

It's been a rollercoaster. His condition took a turn for the worse after a few days. Last weekend, the doctors broached the issue of pulling the plug. Thankfully, two days ago, before any decision was made, he became responsive again. Right now he seems better than he has been at any time since this adventure started. We still don't know if he will make it. All we can do is keep praying.

Many thanks to everyone who has remembered us in their prayers over these past long months. My brother-in-law passed away peacefully in his sleep yesterday afternoon. He has had time to make peace with all his family, and now he is finally free from his suffering. He will be sorely missed, and fondly remembered.
