@Courtney_J You hit the nail on the head. My family is just so lost and confused on all of this. We don't know what's next - will he have this forever? will it come back? will it kill him? I think it's taken more than just a physical toll on my brother but a sort of psychological toll on the family. We try to be there for him but we don't really know what to say because we're just as lost and scared as he is. Is anyone else going through this?
