    My father is 52 years old, and has had Diabetes for about 30 of those years. However it wasn't until recently (past 5 years) that he's had any complications.

    I am now typing this new thread from a PC in the ICU of Union Hospital in Terre Haute, IN. I'm here because my father has stopped breathing on his own. He had been previously diagnosed with kidney failure, has had 1 heart attack, and has had several other complications. Lately he has only been awake on average 6-7 hours per day, and even then he's not all that coherant. He's on the list for a kidney transplant, and his brother (my uncle) is a perfect match. Dad just needs to lose about 20 more lbs. or so before they can safely go through with the procedure. Personally, I have been with him pretty well through the whole thing, and have always had a positive feeling... like I knew he'd be alright, that he would make it through. But this time, I don't have that feeling, I'm not so sure he'll be with us very much longer. So if you would, please try to pray for Charles Black. Even if you're not religious, or don't believe in higher beings, or what have you, at least well wishes would be nice.

    I'll try to keep updating as the day goes along.

    My prayers are with you guys. I got diagnosed with Kidney disease earlier this year, so I feel your pain.

    Thank god that your uncle is a perfect match, that should save a lot of heartache and prolong the use of his kidney function.

    I most certainly wish you the best, Moroni. I hope your father endures as little suffering as possible.

    Hey, you've got JESUS praying for you now, man, you can be sure your dad'll be okay now!

    In all seriousness, I'll definitely keep your dad in mind and pray for him.

    UPDATE: Dad is in stable, but serious condition. He's been on a ventilator now for about 18 hours, not breathing at all on his own. He's been in and out of consiousness about twice. His blood sugar is back within normal parameters, and his blood pressure has normalized. Outlook, though grimm it may be, is better. I hope he keeps improving. Also, he was weighed somehow, and he is now within a safe weight limit (he was 20 lbs over beforehand) to be able to operate, all he needs now is a kidney.

    That's friggin awesome. Believe me when I say I'm genuinely happy to hear he's improving. It may not be a huge step, but every little bit counts.
