Hello it is me Brian. I finally made it back. Was going to be back earlier but the weather was acting up LOL Thank Goodness for me having my sister's laptop. I'm doing good under the circumstances but still a little bit nervous. Things I found out from my family especially my brother, shocked the heck out of me. Have to go back on Thursday to see if everything is going well. I sure hope that I can actually start walking w/o using something & get back to normal. By the sounds of it, I'll be taking it easy for the next 2 to 4 wks. I'll post when I know what has happened & what my family hasn't told me. Not quite sure if I want to know tho. Again I just wanted to say Hi & ty for all the prayers & thoughts for me & my family at this time. Very much apprieciated. Also I would like to say a huge ty for the welcome everyone has given to Tom & to a special friend of mine for taking the time to do my turns & watching my fellowship for me. Well I better get going & take some meds before I fall asleep. Good Night & God Bless each & everyone
Brian has to go back next wk. The tests came back inconclusive. They did 2 separate tests at different times which showed 2 different results. Brian is feeling down but still fighting w/ plenty of hope. Thank Goodness we got him a wheelchair so he can actually go outside. Still has to do his exercises but we aren't doing them 3 times a day for 1 hr. We are going to do them 2 times a day 1 in the morning & 1 in the afternoon. At least he is getting alot of latch-hooking done LOL. Brian said in the hospital room that he will definitely be back here this weekend
I'm so sorry for not being here & doing alot of updating on Brian like I would like to have done. Been going to all the game sites that I know of to let his friends know what was what. Saturday morning we contacted the Dept of Human Resources to get him a wheelchair so he can move around which he is renting. He was getting pretty yancy about wanting to go out & shop for things. LOL The walking exercises are definitely doing good for both him & the rest of us. Our sister gave him a laptop to use ( mostly to watch the Tigers) Today he is in the hospital for follow up testing & hasn't gotten home yet & didn't receive a call that he would be staying in yet. So far, it looks like everything is going good healing wise but as we know, looks can be deceiving. I'll let everyone know what is what when he gets home later on today or Thursday. Again, I'm so sorry about not being here updating his health. Our continued thoughts & prayers go out to each & everyone who needs them. Again, a big ty for all the prayers our way. & we are very apprieciated. Brian might actually start playing & posting here again hopefully this weekend
We keep everything closed up during the day but we have a fan built into the ceiling. We turn that on overnight when the temps are cooler. We leave some windows & all doors open to pull in the cooler air that you can actually feel a very nice breeze. We have 2 ac's but they are located at the other end of the house. It would take almost 3 1/2 hrs to actually reach his bedroom. Put some fans in certain places to draw to cooler air to his room but that doesn't seem to work to well tho
Well all the tests came back great yesterday morning. Brian couldn't wait to get out of there. Slept the rest of the day Monday. Still he has to take the anti-biotic pills tho. I consider them being horse pills. Has to go back every 2 wks for follow-up checkups This weather however is making him cranky ( extremely hot & humid) so the exercises are definitely going to be hard, even in the house. Again I just want to say a big TY for everyone's continued thoughts & prayers daily for him & the rest of the family. God Bless each & everyone. Sorry that I didn't post anything earlier. Was hectic to say the least for us trying to get everything ready for his welcome home LOL
Hello everyone. Today Tom showed up at the Dorcino game site and said that Brians tests were good so they were able to take him home today. That was awesome news to hear. I just wish that his room had AC. It only has fans.
Good morning. Tom do you know yet if he will be going home today or tomorrow or later then that? OH you mentioned that his room has no AC. In this heat and humidity you should tell his doctors about that. They may not want him to use it if it has no AC.
Tom if it has not changed since he has had internet then I still have it. He gave it to me some time ago. I will send an email for you to look at to make sure I wrote it down correctly. I just didn't think it would be right giving it out to anyone without his consent. There may be some people who he doesn't want to have it. If he wants I can get a list of the people who are asking for it and he can let you know if it is okay for them to have it.
Tom Snoopy could get a good boost from his Tigers this year. Who knows, they may go all the way. It will certainly lift his spirits if they win the World Series. OH with this hospital being about a blockage the doctors must be placing him on a special diet. Tom some of his Dorcino friends have asked for an address to send him cards. What should I tell them?
Amandakmg365: yqw....only has messenger on it. Definitely will miss most of the games but after 6 1/2 to 7 wks, he can go to either the Tiger games or the start of Wolverines football. I haven't checked when they start this year LOL
Thank you very much Tom for the good news about Snoopy. I was hoping and praying to get good news before my birthday. Don't worry to much about the gardens. I know how much he loves then but he is more important. I am sure that Pixie has been going nuts without him. I have told him before that he spoils her to much but she is his puppy. Does his pc only have a messenger or does he also have a mic on the pc? OH I just thought of something. With this long recovery time he will end up missing the Tigers games. Hugs to both of you and to Pixie too.
Tuesday: ty & I will Tuesday. Brian was thinking that as well, he did have everything planned out, have a good friend taking his turns for him so his games wouldn't time out, making a little boss in his fellowship & keep it nice & running & for me doing alot of other things w/o worrying. I think as well as you, that ppl should do that as well so alot of players know what has happened to missing players as well
ScarletRose: yqw & yes this does put your life into perspective when something like this happens to someone in your family, someone you know as well. My yard isn't as big as his tho & mostly mow everything at his home w/ the tractor except for inside the fenced in part. The only things that was getting out of control is the weeds in his 10 gardens & that wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Taking it easy tonight & tomorrow. Between me & our 3 sisters everything will be doing ok
Snoopy: yqw. Did you know that Snoopy is his favorite cartoon character....even has a glass snoopy jar that used to have jelly in it & also has 2 Charles Schultz's comic books, "It's A Dog's Life, Snoopy" & "Peanuts Treasury" which he got before Mr. Schultz passed away
TigerCat: Thanks for the update.. make sure to take care of yourself as well.. Really makes one realize how vulnerable we all are when we hear of others.. You are a good brother to take care of him and his home. I am sure he appreciates you..
Amanda & Scrappi, Brian will be home on the 6th but won't be on-line much for the next 3 to 5 wks tho. I decided not to answer the phone & let him do that when he is able LOL Like Brian doesn't like to be quiet If I can figure out on how to get his messenger working, he'll be able to chat that way for 15 minutes we can do that. I did mention to Crow when she asked me which hospital Brian was in while I was in Dorcino's, it is Heritage Hospital. I have to do something w/ all the flowers he has at the house. I brought them home w/ me. Haven't seen that many bouquets & containers in my life LOL
I finally got hold of the Dr's on Wednesday & asked what they did & what they planned on doing. They told me that they did another test before the surgery to see if everything was the same from the 1st test they did. They found out after the test that they Aorta was a little damaged but the left ventricle was ok. They put in a stent heading somewhere ( so sorry) can't remember all the medical stuff. Did more tests on Wednesday to see if everything was going good. So far it is. They moved him out of ICU that morning. Brian is healing up nicely that on Thursday, for at least 1 hr 3 times a day, they started him walking slowly to build up his strength. Brian will be released on the 6th so he can be home ( he's been bugging them bigtime about that) LOL. Don't have the names of the anti-biotics he'll be having tho. But when he is home, He cannot sit down for long periods of time ( 15 minutes max). Won't be able to do much of anything for the next 3 to 5 wks if lucky. Brian will be able to start doing his walking exercises(Dr. orders) next Wednesday the 7th. Him using a walker isn't something I'm used to seeing, but that is what he'll be using occasionally I do believe. Definitely going to drive him crazy that he can't sleep or sit the regular way that he does. Somewhat sitting up w/ his legs elevated when awake or sleeping. Between my work & things that needs to be done around my home & coming back & getting things done around here is alot tougher than I expected. Hopefully I haven't destroyed anything in his gardens . I haven't been answering his phone tho. Going to re-arrange his bedroom for easier access to everything this weekend. Pixie can't wait for Brian to come home. Brian will be doing alot of latch-hooking LOL Sorry for going on & on. Again I just wanted to say BIG TY for all the prayers & continued thoughts for me & our family at this time + being his friends as well. Take good care of yourselfs & God Bless
TigerCat: Hi This is another friend of Snoopy from Dorcino's. I heard about our friend Brian and wanted to send along prayers and well wishes to him. My email is email@example.com. Many of us would like to send a card to him, but we don't know which hospital he is in. Could you let me or Amanda know? PLEASE? Stay strong. Paula Biel aka Scrappy
Hello: I am an internet friend of his from before we started to play here at Brainking. I had not heard anything about something being wrong until someone took his turn in our game. They told me to read his fellowship to find out what happened but unfortunately I am not a paid member. We became friends whe we both played at Dorcinos together. My thoughts and prayers to him and to the family. Tom my email address should be in his address list so feel free to message me from it to keep me informed. I will let his Dorcino friends know what is happening.
This is his brother Tom using his nick at the moment. Brian's surgery didn't go to well. The Dr's tried lowering his blood pressure but the meds made him hyperventilate & shaking way to much that they had to rush him into ICU to monitor him 24 7 for 2 days until he was stable. On the 26th, he had surgery but they found alot of blockage around Aorta & the left venticle. That was a 7 hr waiting nightmare so say the least. Brian is still in ICU & might be there for another week. All depends on the meds that will help. Sorry if I don't know the names on all. Still waiting to talk w/ the Dr's on what they did & what they are planning to do. They definitely told me that he isn't going to be working anytime soon. I have to go to his work & tell them that he won't be coming back. Again I just wanted to say a thank you for all the prayers & thoughts for a speedy recovery from my family to all of you! He used to play under the name of MagicDragon a few years back
Artful Dodger: I am so sorry to hear that.. what a terrible upset and loss that is... I can't even imagine the emotions right now.. but, I hope and pray for you and your cousin and family the strength to get through this.
