    For those who do not know already, CP's mom is very ill. He will not be around for awhile. Please keep him in your thoughts.

    Just got an update by CP via AIM "she's not doing very good she had a major set back today man. She's still in ICU."

    EDIT: CP says "Tell them the best way to contact me now is either AIM or Facebook. I get the notifications on the phone so it's easier to respond."

    I would just like you to know CP that whatever happens we're right here for you. It's not easy having a loved one in such a state. When my mom had a massive stroke in her 40's it was the most difficult time I could remember, we were told she would never recover, never walk again, never speak, never be able to feed herself; not even be able to open her own mouth. The most difficult decision our families had ever had to make.

    My prayers go out to you and your family my good friend! :(

    Thanks for all the wishes/prayers guys, definitely means a lot to have part of such huge community supporting me! To sum it up, I'm going to quote what I wrote in the Moderators Forum as we have a thread in there as well.

    "Thanks Paul for opening the thread for me and keeping the peeps posted. Also, most importantly thanks to all of you for your wishes and prayers!

    Reason I asked Paul to do it for me is my mom lived alone with her sister (my Aunt). So initially I was staying there for two days because in my house they had fumigated and had covered the house up. But I extended my stay once this happened to keep her company and give her support, or give each other support. There's no net there so I have no net nor PC there, just my phone. But I've been so busy it's hard to find time to log in and take a look at everything.

    Well as far as my mom, she suffered a pretty severe stroke. She was completely paralyzed on her left side from head to toe, and was doing very bad initially. After some treatment and urgent care she was starting to recover. She got air lifted to a better more capable hospital and she was doing the rest of her recovery there. She was doing great two days ago and recovering quickly. But yesterday during a small procedure they were doing to clear out one of her lungs she had a cardiac arrest for about 5 minutes.

    Now she's all tubed up again, heavily sedated and basically needs to start her recovery from scratch. There's still part of her brain that is inactive but that is something only time will tell. For now this is just very stressing and hard, but me and my aunt is all she's got, so I know we both need to stay strong for her. I'll keep you guys posted."

    For those who have my #, you can text me, or if you want it send me a PM and I'll send it to you. I'll be online a bit more often now that I was able to catch up on things off and on TPU. Thanks again guys! :respect: :respect:

    Well, they finished the procedure on her this time and removed all the respiratory assistance that she had. My aunt is there and says that she's awake and a bit active. So hopefully it's a smooth recovery from here. I'll be seeing her right after work.
