My Brother Has CHF

My brother, who had strokes ten years ago, is in the hospital for CHF. Poor thing has fluid around his heart and lungs. He is now on a ventilator. His kidney's are also failing him. Our parents went to see him on Monday after getting a call from the hospital. My mom told me not to worry or come down because my brother has nine lives. My brother has been very close to death before but has survived. I can't help but to wonder how much his body can handle but I know we are a family full of fighter's. I also wonder about myself and having the same issues as he does. I just have to remind myself I am not my brother and I am much better off after my strokes. It's really hard not to be there with my family but my parents have things under control. My mom has become a lot stronger during these situations. Now she has to keep me calm and not drive like a bat out of hell to get to SC. But I know prayer works. I prayed for God to help my brother and to help us all no matter what happens in this situation.

Punch, my prayers have gone up to our Father in Heaven for your brother to get better, well and come out the hospital better than ever..... Now I'm a bit dumb so may I ask you what is CHF?? I ask because my stroke was 12 years ago...... I don't suppose I have fluid like he does but you never know what can happen to your body....

 

I feel blessed by my condition so I want to bless others as well by the grace of God.... Keep us informed please!!!!!!!

CHF is Congestive Heart Failure. My brother's heart isn't failing, it's just not functioning like it should. This condition can cause fluid to build in the lungs as well as around the heart.  My brother has diabetes and high blood pressure which could have contributed to this. As of now he his breathing is getting better.  They thought he had some internal bleeding, and he had to have 2 pints of blood given to him.  But now he is fine.  Just taking it one day at a time.  Thanks for the prayers.  My brother has so many people praying for him it's so amazing and a blessing.
