Prayers needed

Hey guys.

So, i haven't really talked about this much, what's been going on recently, but here it goes.

Many of you know my brother Steve. He was a part of these boards for many years, in fact he's the one that got me to join when it was Outdoors Best.

I can't at this moment get into all the details as I'm having a hard enough time holding my together. But many of you know he was an alcoholic. It became worse, much worse, the last 6 months or so. He went to ICU few weeks ago in bad shape, real bad. Today he went in for a follow up and was admitted to ICU again. Renal and liver failure. He's likely not got much time left, we'll hear the details tomorrow, but I'm imagining we are going to be making hospice arrangements if he can't be put on dialysis. The ends for certain, and not far, but I'm hoping it's not hours or days.

So, we could use a few good thoughts sent out west. It would have to be a miracle to really turn the course, but itd be great to maybe see him to his birthday coming up.

Just wanted to let everyone know what's going on with him. I'll update ya'll as i hear it

    Mrs Chief passed from ESLD/Hepatocellular Carcinoma/Cirrhosis complications and didn't even drink. It is a tough thing for them to go through and watch.

    I hate to hear this. I remember him from the older forum iterations. Prayers for him, you, and the family. :angel2:

    Just got a call from the Dr, he's vomiting blood again but they didn't say we need to come right away. I'll be going 7am mountain time tomorrow (icu visiting hours) I'll update everyone when we know what's up. If you're going to pray, please pray to get him through the night. I'll update soon

    Oh Brother, I was afraid of something like that. Alcohol has hurt a lot of people and ruined a lot of lives. It has hurt me and my family.

    Here are some prayers:

    Steve is a good guy with a bad disease and I pray he survives this and is able to turn things around. Sitting vigil with my dad on hospice right now as well so I know what your going through. What hospital is Steve in?

    Sorry to hear about Steve's condition but he's been battling the bottle for a loooong time. I hope he finds some peace soon. Best of luck to you both. Gimme a call some time, you still need to come up and see the shop.

    I remember meeting Steve out on the eastern plains of Colorado. Please tell him I'm in his corner.

    Thank you everyone, from all of my family.

    I told him today everyone here was praying and pulling for him, he was very happy about that.

    We will know more this afternoon when the kidney doctor has seen him again. I'll let everyone know what we hear.
