Friday’s nugget of joy was not Tim failing his latest Microsoft test, it was my younger brother Josh suffering a major asthma attack and nearing death. He had a 10% chance of survival Friday night. They did a surgery that inserts a machine with tubes that basically bypass his lungs, because they were not working. I know, very technical of me but you know it’s 10:00 at night and we have two awake kids in the hotel room, one of which is making me Apple Pie with the microwave. Oh now Tim gets some Apple Pie in the shape of pants.
Anyway. He was flown from the Eau Claire hospital via helicopter around midnight last night and is here at the St. Mary’s Mayo hospital facility. We all drove over to visit him today and meet up with my other brother Shane, my Mom and the people who gave them a ride (nice people). My stepdad opted to stay home and drink himself into obvilion and my other brother didn’t have the cash or will to come. So yeah. Here we are. Athena is crying and needs to go to sleep. I need to get Morella to stop playing with the microwave.
Bets on who is getting sleep tonight?
PS…Josh is doing much better and his chances of survival has increased greatly.
