I am getting around here to head to the hospital. THe doctor comes in around 9:30ish. I hope that they don't drag this out all day. That sounds cold, but dragging it out only makes it more difficult for the family and for my brother as well. It also is very possible that he will be able to breath on his own once it is turned off. I need to prepare my family for what could transpire. It IS not fun to watch someone struggle for air. Hopefully they can medicate him enough to make it less dramatic.
I will check in later. The hospital has wireless.
