please excuse the terrible spelling and grammar. I am typing this on the cell phone.
My symptom tracking stopped on Wed when I got word that my little brother had entered renal failure. His definitive diagnosis is TTP- HUS likely from an e.coli infection or other food born pathogen. He was transferred to Mount Sinai in Manhattan where he started plasma transfusions and blood transfusions. I flew out Thursday morning. He had been steadily improving and i planned to leave today. This morning we got a call saying that he had had a stroke or seizure during the early morning hours and that he was in an MRI. He was confused and not speaking coherently. We rushed to the hospital and he didn’t know who we are.
I am terrified for him and our little family. I won’t be flying home today, nor will I be poas-ing anytime soon. Please keep him in your thoughts. I know this is not fertility related. For me it is so much more. I would trade all the maybe babies for my brother to be ok.
