All In One Day...  
So, the other day my mom calls me up and tells me that my brother wasn't feeling good and they were on their way back from the hospital. I got to talk to him and he said that they told him he had Hepititis A. Well, yesterday morning, he was apparently feeling worse so they took him back to the hospital. After many hours of waiting they finally gave him a CAT scan and then (after more waiting) they told him that he didn't have Hepititis A, he had Hepititis C. Which, of course, is bad. But it's also treatable, especially since they seem to have caught it so early. He's still in the hospital and they've been doing tests on him all day. I got to talk to him on the phone and he sounds waaay better than he did yesterday. He was even laughing. ^_^ Good sign.

But after all the tests, they've also discovered that he has diabetes. They're doing blood tests and stuff now so he'll hopefully be able to find out if he has type one or type two. And also, the doctor told my mom that I should get tested since it runs in our family and now my brother has it...well, now we got to find out if I do too.

Keep your fingers crossed on this one, folks. Hopefully tomorrow, my brother can go home. He's hoping since both the Hepatitis C and diabetes are treatable that tomorrow morning he can go. According to him, that may be happening.

So that's it. All this pretty much happened over a day. (Two if you count the first hospital visit.) It's been an overload but after writing it all out, I feel much better.

Things are beginning to look up again.

Well I already told you on IM how sorry I am about the whole thing, but I don't think it would hurt to repeat it. ^_~

*Hugs* I'm very sorry about all of this, your poor brother. Thankfully they found all of this stuff now so it won't be impossible to cure/help. I hope he feels better and I hope your tests come back negative.

If ya need me to talk or anything, I'm here. :)

*Hugs once again* lol

Well, you already know how sorry I am and how worried I am for your brother. I too hope everything works out because let's face it, he's kinda like a big brother to me. As for your Mom I hope she'll be okay too and as for your tests, you know I'm going to be there sitting next to you (even if the doctor TRIES to kick me out it won't happen, unless you dun want me to)

But I will be thinking and praying for him and being your roommate, you know I'm here to talk to you sweetie. *hugs tight* I love you hun and you're my sister. Let me know if you wanna go home at any time and we'll go.

Now let us watch Ben Afflack be a cutie and save the world ^_^

*is watching Armaggedon for those who think I'm being insensitive*
