My second thread. The first is awaiting deletion due to details that were in the thread.

Basically, my brother is in intensive care with multiple stab wounds, he is stable, but critical. So he could go either way.

At the moment it doesn't feel real to me, I feel like I'm in a soap or something! It's very surreal sad

Here's my hand again OP. Thinking of you, your DB and your family xxx

Awful isn't it Horse? I'm just thankful the news doesn't have all the details of his injuries.

Thank you everybody, it feels better to talk to a bunch of random strangers smile my mum said I can talk to her about it but I don't want to worry her, with mumsnet there's always someone around to chat to, my mum has to sleep sometime!

I hope you all manage to get some rest and your db has a settled and peaceful night.

I'm still waiting to hear how his tracheostomy went! It was supposed to be over at 8pm, I texted my mum at half 8, no news yet, my sister (who is there with mum) said she'd let me know when they knew.

Oh no! You must be in shock at the same time as trying to deal with it all. Good to hear you are all being looked after. Hope you hear how his op went soon.

On my way to see him now with my mum and sister. Both his lungs had collapsed and one is back to normal, and the other lung isn't quite as bad as it was.
