Hello. Welcome to MLP. If you PM your contact info, I will forward that to Rachel and she can make any decisions on contacting you.

I do have an update on Dave. Dave has been in a coma since he was admitted to the hospital. He was put on a ventilator because he could not breathe on his own. He was weaned from his ventilator and they did a "pain test" to see how he reacted. It seems that if a person is brain dead, they react differently. Dave did not react as if he was brain dead.

He had been opening his eyes but was still in a coma. He was not taking his feeding tube well and he also was not breathing well so they had to reinstall his ventilator.

After making some progress he has taken a step back and it just doesn't look good.

Rachel is a very classy young woman and carried herself with much grace when I met her in the waiting room. It's no wonder Dave married her.

Some of the comments on the Facebook page are jaw dropping. Someone wanted to know if Rachel would set up a laptop for Dave so they could Skype with him. :shock: I swear to god I'm not making that up.

I cannot even post some of the other lunacy that's been posted there because of the religious talk ban here. Most of you would be shocked, I think.

There is nothing "glorious" or "fortunate" to what happened to Dave. He was not "lucky" or "chosen". I don't believe this is part of some "plan". I really wanna punch some people.

The only way you can PM somebody is if you have more the 5 post I believe.

I hope your friend continues recovering, Torren.

Ruby, what y'all do is great stuff. My stepfather was a head electrician and IBEW member on Platform Gilda off the SoCal coast, and when he died in a rig accident in 1990, you guys, or angels like you, were able to hold my mom's hand until I could grab emergency leave and come home. I hope you are able to help Dave and his family as you helped mine.
