    Just received one of those phone calls nobody ever wants to get. My fiancé’s brother stopped breathing. He was resuscitated, but is currently on life support. We are waiting to find out what caused this and also waiting on a CT scan to determine the extent of the damage. His brother is a 10+ hour drive from us. At this time we don’t know if we are leaving in a few hours, few days, or if I’ll be dropping Scott off at the airport and staying behind.

    I know there are a few pending anemone issues, @Alan, @viper357, @sihaya and others I’m sure will help you out with your anemones if I disappear for a few day.

    Thanks guys!

    Well, while I drove 4 hours to get my son to bring him back home to take care of grandma and the seahorses, Scott's brother passed away. They took him to surgery and found out he was full of cancer. He'd not been feeling well for the last 3 weeks. When they opened him up they found that he also had a perferated bowl. They closed him back up in hopes that the family could get there to say goodbye. Scott and I didn't make it. Scott's sister is on an airplane somewhere waiting to find out that she didn't make it in time either. Scott's niece held the phone up to his brother's ear while Scott said his goodbyes.
