Update for my brother Vince.
I was again amazed at the professional attitude of yesterday's hospital staff. Late last night I received a call from the admissions doctor where Vince is. We had a long talk and there were some good things along with the bad. The good things is that Vince's donor pancreas looks good and at this time the stroke did not effect Vince's body. However, Vince can not speak and has a memory deficit. An MRI today will tell more. Last night when the doctor asked Vince who to contact, Vince showed him my name and number in his cell phone. At least he remembers me.
I am asking continuing prayers, healing energy, and love sent for Vince. Thanks dear friends.
Update for my brother Vince. After dealing with the most amazing young man at the ER at Sutter Memorial hospital, I was told that Vince is in critical condition. They were running more tests and I have to wait a few hours to find out more. Right now I have to phone my nephew to tell him about his dad. I can't stop crying. Thanks again for all of you.
The last few hours have been horrible. My brother Vince had dialysis this morning. I call him around 10:oo am each day. He didn't answer. I figured he was sleeping. About 15 minutes later Vince phoned. He was having a stroke. I got him to hang up and phoned the 911 operator here in OR. What a f%^&** joke. I then phoned a friend in Sacramento who's husband is a sheriff. Thanks the Universe for them. I then phoned Vince back and listened to him stroking on the phone. I just talked to him and told him I love him. The phone went dead. My friend the sheriff phoned to tell me the ambulance was there. I phoned the hospital and got a wonderful guy named David who has become my good friend. I don't know why it took so long to drive 11 miles from Vince's house to the hospital and I was thinking the worse. David took my number and has been in touch with me all morning. Vince finally made it to hospital. I am waiting to call to see how he is. I am so beside myself with grief. I am having lupus episodes and need to lay down. However, I can't until I know how my brother is. Please continue to pray for him.
Thank you to all of my dear friends for your help and support.
