He ain't healthy, he's my brother

My brother Jeff went in for a lung biopsy yesterday, but there were complications (aren't there always in my family?) his lung collapsed, and they're having a little trouble getting it to fully reinflate. If a larger tube doesn't work, he'll be transferred from Kendallville (room 231) to a Fort Wayne hospital for further treatment.

I don't have to tell you that stuff relating to the book release, including getting it out on e-book and getting some free copies sent, is on hold for the moment. I'll keep everyone updated on his status; as usual, prayers and good thoughts are appreciated.

Much appreciated. It's especially rough, because he's never been hospitalized.

I'm really sorry to hear that. I hope they get him stabilized soon.

They've transferred him to another hospital to have some procedures done, to help get the lung repaired. So, he's stable, to a degree--but has a long road ahead, yet.

It's his first hospital stay -- I suspect a lifetime of running from doctors is coming back to bite him.

Exactly what we need! And for the whole family--my mom and dad can't go to see him, because they're both sick.

Sickness seems to have become our family affair lately.

Sir you, your brother and family are in my prayers. *hug* Do update us.

The latest update is that Jeff is at another hospital, awaiting a procedure to repair the lung since it isn't healing itself--but he's stable. In all the fuss I don't think any of us are even thinking about the fact that we still have to get the biopsy results.

Keep us updated mate. Sending my best.

Operation's Tuesday morning! But the worst for him is that he'll have to spend about 8 weeks recovering ... he's not the type to sit around, so we'll all have to fight to keep him from overdoing it.
