The worst part of this sort of thing is seeing someone you love totally helpless and you helpless as well. He's on a ventilator and it seems like he's struggling to breathe at times which is horrific to watch. The nurses station is literally right outside the door though and they're super attentive. He's in good hands.

My oldest surviving brother apparently has had a few heart attacks in the last 12 hours and is in the hospital doing poorly. Last update I got he was in the heart catheter lab looking for blockages. That was about 4 hours ago. I’m about 3.5 hours into my drive from Indy. He’s been really overweight for many years and just turned 65 in April which is an old man in my family. Nobody has been that old for a couple of generations. Anyway, not looking for sympathy I guess it’s just cathartic writing it down. Waiting for an update from the nurse it’s tough. Still not sure if I’m going for a visit for a funeral.
Sorry to hear. Getting old sucks.

Thanks. Can't believe I got his age wrong, he's 64. Duh. I need some sleep but I don't see much coming my way.

He passed about 30 minutes ago. Thanks again for all the kind words. Never planned a funeral before, time to learn something new I guess. ****.
I am so sorry to hear that, that sucks big time. Had to arrange a funeral with my mother for her father, so my grandpa, last year- what a hassle when you are down already. Wishing you the strength to pull through this!

be strong now.....
really sorry man.....
you're a good one....
and I'm sure your brother was too...

don't worry about arrangements...
everything just falls into place.....
someone will help you every step of the way....

you went to a hell of a lot to get there....
sometimes people just hang in there...
until someone arrives....
it was you....
and you said your goodbyes....
was all that matters...
to you and your brother....

RIP
