Thank you, all of you.

Unfortunately so far all the news is bad. He coded and was without oxygen for 13 minutes. They are testing like crazy, but so far his brain is not showing any activity and they think he is brain-damaged. They are still trying though, but it's looking very bad.

I'm so sorry Steph. I can't imagine how hard this is for you and your family - especially around the holidays. I wish you and your family the strength you need to get through this regardless of outcomes.

Thanks to both of you

Right now he is still unconcious and not responding at all. They are keeping him alive via lots of tubes and IVs for now. The hospital did recommend giving 48-72 hours to see if he just needs some time and will improve at all, which is what my aunt is doing. Unless he crashes again before then, she will not make any decisions until at least Wednesday. Her one daughter got to the hospital last night, and the other is driving up from Georgia right now.

Uncle Update:

My uncle just woke up!!! He has been unconscious with no sedation at all since yesterday and was not expected to wake up, though they said it was possible and to give him time. Well, he woke up about a half hour ago and remembered my aunt. He seems to have some short-term memory loss as he has asked several times what happened to him and then forgets and asks again 5 minutes later, but that is not unusual for what happened to him. He knows who he is, his wife, family members, he recognized the hospital he is in....all great signs.

We still don't know what will happen from here, but his waking up is truly a miracle on it's own. Thank you so very much for the prayers and good thoughts from all of you, I'm sure it helped him, and I know it helped me!!
