Default My friend may be dying

I have a dear friend and classmate that was is a bad motorcycle accident last Saturday. He is in critical condition and on life support. The doctors have said that over half of he brain is basically dead. I am so bummed and can't think of anything else but him. I have been praying and thinking about him constantly. The family said that the only thing that will save him is an all out miracle from God. I don't want to loose him but if I were in that condition I would want to go. His dad has to make the terrible decision of what to do in the next couple of days. What do you guys think?

I am gay and happy with that.
I love talking to people very open & willing to listen.
I am also glad to try help with questions or problems.
Hit me up for anything. I promise I don't bite.

So saddened to hear this. That's a very hard situation, my thoughts and prayers for he and his family and friends. Have faith and stay strong.

@Jamie_n

I've heard people live with half of their brain. The damaged half can be removed with modern medical practices. It might cost a lot but maybe extensive brain surgery could save his life. I'm no expert on this--not even close--but it's worth looking into.

All I can tell you is to look over him and the decisions people are making about his treatment. If you don't know his parents well, then now might be the time to try and get to know them. They'll be the ones making the decisions and I'd definitely advise you to be with him through everything. Make sure they've got the best medical minds looking into it to see what they can do.

Keep us updated, man. I'm sorry this has happened to you. I'm not sure if this was the kind of advice you were looking for, but I do think it's important in this situation. It does suck that this has happened.

Keeping him on life support until medical experts are absolutely sure that there is no solution is probably the best thing. Working fast of course is a must.

oh dear I am so sorry man . one of my dear friends was killed in an auto-accident. I know the intense pain you and his family are going through

his dad/family will be the one to make the decision. I guess in your position, try to respect and understand what the family does, even if it is not what you would have done yourself. they have to be the ones to make it and it will not help to be mad or angry at them (not saying you would).

just try to be there for them anyway you can no matter what happens. I am so sorry man though, I sadly do know how heartbreaking that is to go through

thoughts and prayers are with hi, his family, you, and everyone else effected

Damn man, that's sad. I'm really sorry for all this and I really really really hope your friend will be okay, I really do. Just try to be there for his family and please, don't bring yourself down because of this. I know it's hard but try to stay strong. Talk about it, don't lock yourself away and cry when you have to but also move forward.

And well, try to prepare for the worst. It sounds a bit dull but yeah, it's probably the best you can do right now. Just stay strong there alright? We're all here if you need people to talk to.

When you're taught to love everyone, to love your enemies, then what value does that place on love?

Jamie I'm really sorry about that. You and your friend are both in my prayers so that you both get through this however it ends. Do not give up hope, God does provide miracles from time to time. But also you know from your past, sometimes that just doesn't happen. It's really hard to say goodbye to someone so close. All I can say is hope for the best and prepare for the worst

They are taking him off life support in about an hour and going to let him go.

@Jamie_n,

Jamie, when I saw this thread I felt so sad for you and his family. When I read down this thread and saw that they had taken the decision to take him off the life support, my heart just sank. I can't begin to imagine what it feels like for you after such a tragic accident. My thoughts and prayers are with you and their family, rest in peace to your friend. Stay strong.
