Cousin in critical condition.. need some positive vibes pleeaase
    #4315354 - 06/19/05 11:58 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

My dad just got back from the hospital and told me the story..

my 15 year old cousin was sleeping over a friend's house saturday night..  apparently they were taking ritalin or adderal or whatever ADD drug his friend has a prescription for..  so the friend fell asleep at around 4am..   

in the morning my cousin's mom called the kids house to talk to him.. they said he was still asleep..  so she called back some time in the afternoon and they said he was still asleep and they couldnt wake him up.    so my aunt called an ambulance.
 
they took him to the nearest hospital, but it was too much for them to handle so they helicoptered him to Yale New Haven hospital..
 
he hadnt been breathing, and still isnt breathing on his own.. there was vomit in his lungs and hes showing many symtoms of oxygen deprivation.  no one knows how long he hadn't been breathing for, and the doctor's exact words to my cousins parents were "he might die"

hes hooked up to a respirator and all kinds of other machinery. needless to say hes still unconscious, but his condition is stable..
though all that means is that his blood pressure is ok and not much is changing.

  the poor kid has his whole life ahead of him, it would be a shame for it to end in the rough teen years when everything seems so frustrating and you're just trying to understand how you fit into it all.

  im trying to send him as many helping healing thoughts as I can..  but if you guys could just take a moment and try to send some positive vibes in his general direction i would really appreciate it..


its such a tough situation because they dont know what kind of damage is done.. he could have permanent brain and organ damage from lack of oxygen.  i hope he wakes up, with his mind and body intact. :crying:

Wow. :frown:

That really puts all of our mundane personal problems in perspective to those this kid is and possibly will have.

Do you have any info on what your cousin's friend or his parents will face? I imagine if your cousin dies they'll have the problems in their lives immensely multiplied also.

It must be a shitty situation for everybody involved.

Do they know the reason why it happend. Was it an OD, or was there an alergic reaction with the drug?

What ever happens he will be in my thoughts. This is going to be a rough time in your family be the one to help everyone through it. Peace man

well my uncle, his father is unemployed right now. hes a really smart guy, he helped create the system that stablizes satellites in steady orbit around earth.. or something related. he just cant find steady work.

so their family is struggling as it is.. this complicates things to a faith-testing extent.

no info on whether it was an OD or an allergic reaction. i dont know much about what kind of dosage it takes to OD on adderal or whatever stimulant it was.

anyway, i'll keep you posted with any news i get... when/if

the drug is no longer the problem. its that he went so long without breathing. the drugs are just what made him lose consciousness in the first place.


i really wish everyone knew about erowid.org and would read up thoroughly before taking anything

So he passed out from overconsumption of the drug, and choked on his own vomit?

That sounds like the case. If so, I wish him the best of luck.

I think he is to young to be taking enough to do that anyways. Ill admit I used to do the same thing but If I could I would have waited another couple of years. Sounds like an od from the puke in his lungs. That is what your body does when it is trying to get something out.

I was in a similar situation when I ODed on heroin and cocaine. But I had never completely stopped breathing, I was still barely breathing when they found me. Still suffered a lot of damage due to oxygen deprivation.. I also had pneumonia very bad, which he must have from inhaling his vomit.
All you can really do is pray for him. Is he showing any brain activity?? Have they done an MRI?? They dont have him on any medication right?? Just the feeding tube down his throat??
