Well, I'm here and it is terrifying.

My brother is heavily sedated and has been intubated due to acute respiratory failure. He just lies there, twitching from time to time, completely unreachable.

He told my sister in law he was going to die before they put him under -- he's an ER doc so he knows.

He can't die. He just CAN'T. I won't let him.

I held his hand and said "I'm BAAAACK".

The Methodist minister came and we prayed over him. I held his hand. I'm learning to love the Methodists.

My husband still thinks I'm overreacting. Perhaps I should send him a picture.

Bidden or not bidden God is present.
