Mother in law just called. He is awake and knows who everyone is. Hospital has given him a shot to keep him calm and comfortable. MIL, BIL and Aunt are going to find a hotel room and will hopefully have more information in the morning. Seems like all our prayers are being heard. I'm sure there's a long way to go, but I'm optimistic. Thank you all again for your kindness and prayers.

MIL called this morning. He is still awake and alert. They were unable to find a hotel so they stayed in the hospital room, although BIL slept in car. FIL was a bad patient and had started pulling out the lines and tubes so the hospital had to put them back. I'm taking that as a good sign although I'm sure they'll keep a closer eye on him and maybe keep him more sedated. Of course there's still a long way to go, but again, I remain cautiously optimistic.

DH had a rough day yesterday but, of course, he too is glad for some good news. MIL seems to be holding her own although I'm sure once FIL is out of the woods she will have a complete breakdown. But she has more than earned that.

Thank you all so much for your continued support and prayers

I've been praying for your FIL and your family. I'm so glad to read your "cautiously optimistic" update! I'll keep praying until your FIL is all better

BIL posted earlier today on FB:

"Ok. So it was a heart attack. He coded at least twice. While the heart stopped he aspirated fluids into his lungs and now concerned with pneumonia. During the heart attach he also had a gastric bleed so they are pumping the junk out of his stomach. He is recovering quickly says the Dr. and the tube should come out in 1 to 2 days. At that time it will be evaluated when transport back to NJ can occur."

Exactly how many things can go wrong at once? Glad to report as of last anyone spoke to them he remains in ICU but is holding his own and doing well. Thank you again to everyone for your thoughts and prayers.

And having taken a page from the DIS, all I can think of now is I hope they had the travel insurance which covers catastrophic incidents like this that help pay for helicopter evac, etc.

Glad he is getting the care he needs.

I have to say, as I read the initial post, I was thinking, "I hope they had travel insurance"...

To one Sister from another Mister, prayers are being sent up on their as well as your behalf. I pray that his stay in ICU is brief and that he receives all the care and rehabilitation he needs to return to his former self.

I was finally able to speak to my mother in law for a little while this evening. Hopefully they will know more on Sunday. She did mention, and we briefly discussed, that they did have the travel insurance so much of the expenses may very well be covered. She could not say enough nice things about Royal Caribbean. They assigned someone to stay with her the entire time, help her make all arrangements and also had someone meet her at each stop along the way to escort her on the next leg of her journey. She mentioned something about a speed boat from one small island to the larger island where she got on a small plane which was waiting to take her to Miami. I joked that she's been away playing James Bond. She said the ship doctor and staff were top notch and that within a matter of a minute or two, in the middle of the night, there were over 20 people in her room.

When I spoke with the ER last night before any of the family got there, they asked about insurance and medical history. I knew none of it but was able to reach out to FIL's doctor's office who immediately called the ER and provided all information they needed.

For as much as this has been horrible, and isn't over yet, it just seemed that all the stars aligned and everything fell in to place so that he has a very good prognosis. Stars aligning or family, friends and DISer prayers... you decide.
