I've got some really bad news - my little brother's in the hospital for a collasped lung. The doctor said something about emphasema too. (everyone but me in my family are smokers - my grandpa just died from emphasema a few weeks ago too. But he's only 18!) Guys, I'm really worried and I could REALLY use your prayers. Thanks.

(Sorry mods, I'm not sure where to put this. . .)

Thanks guys - they put the chest tube in and he's not hurting as much anymore thankfully - its still a waiting game. I probably won't be online tomorrow till later, just to let you guys know. I'll be at the hospital with him.

Well, at the moment, I'm waiting on updates from my mom to pass to people and I have to do something or I'll go crazy with worry, though I'm about to go to sleep - I'm going up there tomorrow.

Well, I am sure your little brother will come out fine, I know what it feels like to have a family member in hospital, my mum is in their for breast cancer, and she could die!

I will keep him in my prayers, and tomorrow I will pray for him at the end of school, and will share it with my class, so they can all pray for him as well! If that is okay with you!

sorry, but lol 3 australians helping you out, that can only help australias rep.

I would do the same as dark master, but no-one at my skool likes pokemon, and its kind of nerdy to go on forums and things like that. But just to let you know, I would do the same

Make that 4.
I don't mean to belittle the problem, but it can be fixed and Emphysema shouldn't be too bad at 18. I have a feeling he'll be fine.

I wish him the best, mate.

Thanks. He's doing a lot better now since they put the chest tube in and I appreciate all your prayers. Now they just have to seal the hole in his lung and he should be fine, but it may take up to four days is what my mom told me. Thanks again.

Collapsed lungs are a big deal. So is emphysema. As corny and cliche as this sounds, try to be strong. All will turn out as it is suppose to in the end.

I don't know how to pray, never done it, so instead I will just say that I wish your brother all the best for a quick and smooth recovery. Hope all goes well and that he's up and about soon.

well, that sucks.
hard.

I really feel sorry for you.
It must be hard to go through not knowing if your sibling is going to live or die ><"

But the smoker thing, um... I would have to go out of my way to be a ass and say that perhaps this could've been prevented.

You got my hope, though.
I hope everything is going to hbe fine for your brother.

This is exactly the reason why you shouldn't smoke, no offence but it's really his own fault & unfortunately now a bit too late as effects of emphysema are irreversible.

I hope he improves anyway - collapsed lungs are treatable though difficult to live with. Also he should stop smoking (as should the rest of your family before it's too late) give them some nicotine patches or something.

I wish your brother, you, and the rest of your family the very best in the coming days. I hate seeing people in pain.

So don't be. You'll all be fine.

Well like some others here I'm not one to be religious, but I hope that it means something when I say I will pray for you, your brother, and your family. Try not to lose hope during this time, because that is where you gain strength from.

And sorry if this is offensive because it's meant as a joke, but at first i thought you were saying your grandpa was 18 form the way you phrased it, and I was kinda like how does that work...?:embarrass

Well, I am sure your little brother will come out fine, I know what it feels like to have a family member in hospital, my mum is in their for breast cancer, and she could die!
That also sucks man, I'll keep you and your mum in my prayers as well... I lost my mom from the same thing at your age, so I know what you must be going through and hope to god you won't have to experience what I have.

Good luck to the both of you. Remember that life is hard, but as long as you have hope, you'll be able to persevere through the good times and the bad. (A little corny I know, but do take it to heart from someone who has lost people who were close to him).

I sympathize with you, I lost my aunt to breast cancer...it was bad...but I guess we just lacked the right faith...

I'll pray for your brother when I pray, and now too...and also for your mother Darkmaster.

I don't think you can blame your faith for what happened, you shouldn't. No one should. In this world we shouldn't blame things on that which is out of our hands, because essentially we end up blaming our own selves (i didn't pray enough, didn't go to church enough, I was a horrible child thus god is punishing me). There might be a lot of could of, should of, would ofs, but the past has already occurred, and we can't go back and change that. What happens happens, you have to hold strong no matter what the outcome is.

I'm not a very religious person, but I know how that is.. my oldest sister had the same type of thing happen before, because she's a smoker AND has asthma, but even after that, she still won't stop smoking.. it's really scary

I hope everything's ok!

Thank you all very much - I just got an update this morning. They removed the chest tube last night and it didn't close his lung up, so now he'll have to think about surgery around monday, but for the moment he's fine. Ha ha, he was cursing at his video game when I called (my mom brought his ps3 up there so he wouldn't get too bored) My brother's a game freak - but come to think of it, so am I. ^_^

OMGosh! I will certainly keep her in my prayers, *Dark* Master. I had an aunt that had it and survived, so I have complete faith that your family member will too - heck, they have to be close to a vaccine anyways, you know, with what they're always saying on the news. I will keep your mom in my prayers.

Well i'm really glad to hear the worst is over. I will still pray in hopes that the surgery goes swiftly too.

Thats not good news.

I will put him in my prayer for sure, I hope he gets better.

I will make you a banner, if you need it. I can cheer up to, but I may be inactive.

Hope your brother gets better, and I'm sorry about your grandpa, too.

As much as I do have sympathy for your brother, posting that sought of stuff on forums and asking for prayers doesn't really do much. It usually gets you down, which is exactly opposite of what you want to be. Always remain positive and it will be alright, thats the wierd thing about the mind, if you think your going to die for the slightest of seconds it will up your chance by heaps, but if you keep positive you wont worry too much about it.
