Please keep my brother in your thoughts and prayers this week as we await test results. He has been struggling with his health for the past few years but is now becoming more critical. They have not been able to find the exact diagnosis yet (hence another round of testing following his latest ER run.) He's had multiple surgeries (including an exploratory that failed to find anything.) I have not been able to talk with him yet... hopefully he'll be able to later today.
My parents, (mom in particular), are really struggling with this news. You may recall that my other brothers have passed away (3) due to varying causes -- all completely unrelated.
