Hello my friends, I'm lying in bed writing this post after a very, long and traumatic week. I've had a very blessed life from childhood to now but sometimes something happens to burst your bubble and my bubble burst early Monday morning when I had a phone call from my Mom saying that my brother was in ICU and was very poorly.
On Sunday night he was found unconcious on the pavement, luckily a police car came past and found him when they did. He had been attacked and left for dead, it was touch and go for him and when we arrived at the hospital he was still on a ventilator. We waited in the relatives room for many hours before we could see him and was broken hearted when I did, he was unrecognizable. How could another person do this to someone ?
Whilst I was getting a drink I saw a friend who asked if everything was ok and when I told her what had happened she gave me a little wooden cross that had been blessed and even though she was obviously very poorly herself all she was worried about was me and my family, such a lovely lady.
They took him off the ventilator on Monday afternoon and he was talking to us by the evening, though he doesn't remember anything about the attack, he'd been left with a fractured eyesocket, broken jaw in three places and broken nose as well as injuries to his body.
Since then he has made an amazingly quick recovery, the swelling in his face has gone down and you can see it's my brother again, he will make a full recovery. He's got to see a plastic surgeon on Monday and my Aunty joked they may make him better looking than before, which he found funny. I'd like to think that somebody was watching over him from above, he still has some way to go but the worse is over and now I just hope that they catch and charge the person who did this to him so nobody else has to go through it. We just can't understand why anybody would have done this to him, he isn't violent man just a nice guy who's whole life is centred around his kids. I've had so many people ringing and messaging me, telling me how sorry they are and wishing him well which has been very heart-warming, I've passed them on to my brother who has really appreciated it and hopefully cheered him up a little bit.
Needless to say I'm not in the right frame of mind to craft or blog but will hopefully back soon, I did make my brother a very quick card inbetween hospital visits and some Whoopie Pies, as he has a bit of a sweet tooth, he's going to be the size of an house with all the sweets and chocolates, people have bought him.
My friends who read my blog regularly know this is my online diary too and was something I needed to talk about, thank you all for listening.
