My boyfriends sister is in a coma. She had a severe asthma attack, and in turn went into cardiac arrest. She had no heartbeat for 11 minutes. The nurses are talking about protecting her brain from swelling. They are talking about possible brain damage from oxygen deprivation.
I’m not a religious person but I’m begging you all to pray for her. She’s a beautiful young woman who just got married a month ago. She has her whole life ahead of her. Please please god keep her safe, protect her, watch over her and her family, please please give her family comfort and hope during this time. Please let her be alright. Her family needs her, she needs to be ok.
Please please keep her safe!! DW’ers please pray for her!!May 27, 2012 at 11:24 pm #27737

I don’t know what to do. How can I be there for my boyfriend and his family? How do you support someone whose loved one is in a coma? I just wish so badly that I could do something. I just want her to get better.May 28, 2012 at 3:49 pm #27793
How about little practical things? Like making sure everybody has eaten, offering to take care of any pets while the humans are with her, or to drive people to / from the hospital or get things for them? Those are nice, and harder to screw up than deeper gestures, which are complicated when you’re in shock. How are you feeling?May 28, 2012 at 4:04 pm #27794
Sending positive thoughts your way, and please keep us updated!
Also I like Rainbow’s suggestion: practical help and gestures are so considerate and wonderful. Taking care of kids/pets, lawn and garden care or picking up mail if they’re away from home, making phone calls for them, giving gas cards (if they’re going to be using a lot of gas driving to and from the hospital), stocking the fridge, cooking food that’s freezable or easy to just throw in the oven when they get home, running errands, picking up prescriptions, maybe buying a long-term parking pass for the hospital parking lot? I’m sure anything along those lines would be really appreciated.May 28, 2012 at 4:05 pm #27795
I’m feeling very helpless. We got some bad news today, but still don’t know enough to be able to guess whether she will recover. I saw her in the ICU on Saturday and it was the scariest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.
My boyfriend sent me a text 2 hours ago with the not-so-good news. I asked him if I could come back to the hospital to be with him and his family, because I’m having a hard time concentrating at work and I want to be there (to be honest, I don’t really know his sister very well… I’ve only met her a handful of times, so as awful as I feel, I’m sure it’s a million times worse for him and his mom and his sister’s husband). It’s hard because I don’t want to intrude on family grief, but I also want to be involved and to be there for everyone.
So I asked him if I could be there, I told him I would like to be there with everyone but that I understand if they would rather have privacy. He said they were going home to get her some of her own things and that he would text me when they were heading back to the hospital. So I haven’t heard back yet.
I sort of feel like just taking off, leaving work and heading over there, but there’s no point if they aren’t there yet. I’m very scared, I keep saying over and over again, please let her be ok, please let her be ok… I’m scared for her, and I’m scared because I can’t imagine how my boyfriend is feeling.
