Adam Is Found, And He Is Alive

I don't have the complete story (though honestly, I could be standing by his hospital bed and still not have enough answers for my taste), but it looks like Adam might be okay.

For those of you who are not on my Facebook, Adam was found today on the brink of death.  When he was brought into the hospital, he was unable to breathe without a respirator and had zero brain activity.  As far as we know, either he or someone else injected him with a fatal dose of a narcotic and we had no hope left.  We, his friends, began leaving goodbye messages on his Facebook and sent his family our condolences.  Then we waited for him to die.

In part because he's a stubborn cuss and in part because of the many prayers that his friends, family, and many readers of mine offered, this evening Adam's brain became active.  While he is still not breathing on his own due to a severe pneumonia infection filling one of his lungs with fluid, the nurses by his bedside stated that he has a very good chance of a great recovery.

Thank you, dear friends, for all your prayers.  Thank you.  We're not out of the woods yet.  He took a turn for the better, and may yet take a turn for the worse.  I have hope though.  We all have hope.

Thank you, whoever is looking out for Adam.  Thank you for giving us hope.


  1. I wish I had taken better care of him and kept an eye on him

  2. Jess, you did awesome. You did really fucking awesome.
