Does anyone know if in the USA there is a help hotline for the family? Background. My cousin went to the VA hospital on Friday had to wait 5hrs before being seen they sent him home saying it was the flu. The next day his wife took him back because he was getting worse. He then went into a coma and has been for the past 5 days. From what I am being told he had fluid surrounding the brain, his sugar levels were in the 300's and blood pressure really low. He has now stabilized with much lower sugar levels and blood pressure increased. I have asked the family if he is responding to the antibiotics and they don't know. The Drs are slow to get answers for him. We are praying for him to come out of the coma but we are really scared. I am 800 miles away from him so I am not able to visit the hospital. What kind of things should the family look for? Ask? Or anything. Oh 1 more thing they said he has no brain function and is on breathing tube but his organs are functional. Thank you as any information would help greatly.
