my brother Update

UPDATE: Jimmy fractured his skull on the left side. he has a metal plate in his head. they were able to get the blood clot out and there is no swelling. He's suffered a serious injury and is in a medical induced coma and on a ventilator. His one eye was dilated whereas the other one wasn't when he was brought in.

My entire family has come together, both sides, estranged sides, to pray for my brother. My room has turned into the resting place, My sister had me on speaker when the doctor came into the room and before he spoke 45 people closed their eyes and said the Lords Prayer.

We have no idea what sort of damage there is. We know it is serious. We can only pray. I can't have him leave us yet.

He called me today to ask how I was feeling, and I wasn't up to talking to him. I am so scared for him. I can't think straight and all I want to do is go down to icu and be with him, but we're not sure if I'm well enough..

just please G-d make him survive this with miminal injury. Please Please Please. He is not done yet. He has gifts that he hasn't used. He wants to be a sports broadcaster, he needs to make it through this, he just has to. Please don't take him. Give him more time. Please please don't take my brother away from us yet.


has been in a terrible car accident. head injuries internal bleeding on the brain. he's here, at the same hospital I'm at, rushed into surgery to try and save him. he was hit by a semi truck. My dad saw him before they rushed him into surgery, he had blood coming out of his ears.

I can't explain the magnitude of this fear. I am so scared. Please make him be okay. He's my Jimmy. My brother Jimmy. Please make him be okay. Please. Please God Please...
