|08:48 am - After 10 and Before 10|
It's never good news when the phone rings before 10:00. Never. Sometimes it's not awful news, but it's never good news. Good news, people feel, can wait.
Actually, I did get good news once at 2:AM. That's where I fell in the birth announcement rotation.
I'm stalling. Nat is doing very poorly and right now isn't expected to make it. His kidneys are failing from a disease my dad couldn't pronounce or maybe remember. That's kind of a blur actually.
They put him on dialysis, but his heart can't take the strain and they had to take him off after 4 hours. They don't know what they do for him. Please pray for whatever you believe in, will to live, divine intervention, whatever works for you.
My parents are heading down. I don't know what hoppie and I are doing yet. I'll know after my 9:15 meeting.
I'm wearing bright pink in an effort to be optimistic.
Current Mood: anxious
*hugs* good thoughts for you and yours.

Oh hon, I can't imagine how helpless you must be feeling right now! Lots of prayers and good thoughts coming Nat's way and yours. If we can do anything, let us know.
Lots of love,
Maya & Greg
oh dear. My thoughts and prayers are with Nat and the family.
I'm so sorry to hear this. He's in our thoughts.

My thoughts are with you and your family; something like this is bad enough to happen, but someone so young, it becomes incomprehensible to me. :(

Thinking of Nat, and you and your family.
if I can help at all (need a ride to Logan?) let me know. Sending lots of love your way.
I don't even know where to go. Do I go to Florida just to be there? I'll probably be in the way, and honest, I don't know if I can see him like this. (if it's worse than I imagine, it's indeed horrible, but it might not be much better.) And maybe I should be going to KY?
I just don't know what to do. I feel paralyzed with indecision and nerves.
If you come to KY, and need ANYTHING (a ride, a friend, ANYTHING) let me know.
How awful - I am lighting a candle for you and your family and thinking and praying for you as much as possible.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do.
Oh, sweetheart, I am SOOOOOOOOO sorry. I'm crying right now, that is just so horrible. I'll say a prayer for him, and your family. *HUGS*
Our thoughts are with him too.
UGH that is not good. *comfort*
