Oh Coff I'm so sorry this has happened. I do hope it resolves and hugs honks whatever helps keep your strength up.

Although I'm a Christian (just about) I was offended by your first post. In fact shouted something very similar at God myself yesterday.

Thinking of you and your brother. I hope that you get some answers very soon and that your brother gets his sight back.

As someone said up thread believers would never take offence to anything like that - we all ask those questions.
Who is supporting your brother other than you, and I know you're glad to do the fighting coff - but seriously you have a lot on your plate. Who's around that can ride pillion with you?
Hope your db gets what he needs and gets on the mend soon - lucky for him he has a sister who'll drag him and the medical profession (kicking and screaming) to that end point.
Much honks, love, hugs and a word with God to get it together wink

Your poor brother, coff. sad Your life has been so difficult lately, you would feel like fate or whatever has got it in for you. Really hope it turns out to be something temporary. Is your brother married? You can't do all this on your own, you need some RL support. Many hugs and honks. Xxx

{{hugs}}

thank you again very much smile

Yes he is married to a wonderful person and its hard for her too, but she is great and very supportive of him could not wish for a better SIL to look after my bro smile

She cannot drive though hence why I was called as he wont ask for help from anyone unless desperate he is such an independent stubborn so and so! (wonder where little bro gets that from grin.

I guess I should sit back and let (HOPE) the medics know what they are doing. Unfortunately due to past and present experiences I tend to cut to the chase now and fight instead of pussyfooting around anymore grin

grin grin grin - sorry laughing at two things the genetic stubbornness and you sitting back and hoping ....interested in how that goes for you??
Glad you have a great SIL

Listen to me, 'married!' Like I'm from the 1950s! Glad he's got someone else also fighting his corner and you can share the worry a bit. smile
