My younger brother (38yo) suffered a brain haemorrhage 10 days ago, following numbness in hands and head. He was operated on the dah after (bleed stopped, clot removed and stent inserted). He lives in Kenya and so is in ICU there until healthcare deem him stable enough to repatriate him.
It is the right hand side of his brain that had the bleed.
Attempts to completely remove sedation have been unsucceasful amd so he is on low level sedative. Breathing hasn’t been successful by himself and today he is having a tracheotomy. Another CT scan due tmw wigh the view to remove the EVD.
My dad and older brother have been there since Sat but I am flying out tonight as older brother and I are tag teamjng.
I would like some insight/ thoughts as to how relatives found this stage - particularly feel I need to support my father during this stressful time (my brother’s partner’s parents are also out there but they operate differently to my, usually, laidback dad).
