    Mods - please don't delete this, but feel free to lock it. We need all the prayer we can get right now.

    My aunt, grandpa, and two cousins were in a wreck with two semi's while driving their minivan on Halloween. My aunt broke her arm, ribs, and c2 vertabre. She has bruised lungs as well. My grandfather, the man of iron, broke his temple, eye socket, jaw, and scapula. Bruised lungs and frontal lobe of his brain. My 8 yo cousin has a diffuse axional injury (worst type of shaken baby syndrome). My 3 mo cousin didn't make it.

    My aunt is home, and healing but in serious pain. My grandfather is in a nursing home and is feeding himself and moving around. My cousin is still going in and out of a coma.

    This morning, the father of this family, my uncle, had a stroke. He is in an ICU and is bleeding into his brain.

    I just ask for prayer for my family, we need all we can get.

    That's not a stroke. A stroke is a blood vessel blockage. He had a cerebral aneurysm, which is when a blood vessel ruptures. :what:

    I was just going by what I was told. I was told that he had a stroke and was bleeding in the brain. Don't take any offense, but the situation has not changed so there really was no point in nit picking the detail. The whole reason I said I didn't mind if the thread got locked was for this exact reason. I don't need to know people are praying for my family, I just hope they are and I really don't need grammar or spelling police correcting either right now, and there is next to nothing that will add to the request but there are many many many things that can and probably will be said or done that will not help one bit. I am a bit touchy right now, so please forgive me, but that comment did nothing to help. Thank you for the information, but at this time it really does nothing but add to my worries, not help them.

    unisonic, your comment was insensitive and wrong. A stroke is any ischemic injury to the brain including hemmorage it's a layman term

    Regardless of specifics, rest assured that you & family alike are in my deepest prayers; I think I can say the same for most of the THR community. Keep your chin up.

    They certainly have the prayers of my family and I.

    And I do hope they get better soon.

    qwert65,
    While I thank you for your "backup" I would prefer that you not waste your time responding to comments like that. I can understand where he is coming from (I am the same way about computers, I have a very hard time letting usage of a term incorrectly (broke vs. not working as I want it to despite the fact that it was never designed to work that way vs. I am not willing to do what it takes to get it to work like loading the drivers). Thank you for your prayers, but there isn't any need to tell me that you are praying for my family... I'm not the one who answers them.

    God bless. Try to find some peace-of-mind. It's going to be a very long haul, especially Re: those with acquired TBI (traumatic brain injury). I will keep you and your whole family in my prayers.

    Doc2005,
    You are more right than you realize. My wife stayed behind to help out when we went on Nov. 1. We kinda hoped to get back together sometime around Christmas (or earlier if they bring my cousin home and my uncle didn't have to be in two places at once (hospital for cousin and home for aunt). Now I hope that she is able to come home before Valentines Day. I hope there isn't any huge damage to my uncle, but that is 3 people who cannot take care of themselves in the same house (right now) and two of those three were the primary providers. Hell, I feel like I am deployed again... no telling when I will see my wife next (and coincidently I can't go back for a family emergency a-freaking-gin) for any extended time.
