A decision no one ever wants to make

This will be a brief post. Things have been hectic here, to say the least... This past Thursday a friend of my family was in a terrible motorcycle accident and has been in the hospital ICU on a ventilator and unconscious ever since. This man, his wife, and his children were our neighbors for 7 years and their children were like extra siblings for my younger brother, who is very close in age to them. Today they are faced with the horrible decision of whether or not to keep him on his life support...My brother is on his way there as I write this, and I know that the family is waiting until he gets there to make their decision. How I wish it were not a decision they had to make. I am praying fervently that Hashem gives them peace and comfort in this time of devastating confusion.

While I do not normally use people's real names on here, in this situation I feel that it is necessary. If you are so inclined, please pray for Robert Brick and his family--wife Tammy, daughter Morgan, and son Andrew. Thank you.


I hope to return to blogging on a more positive note in the near future...
