All in the details

My brother's lost thirty pounds and they have him in an isolation room. My parents had to put on hoods with fans in them to see him, but they said he sounded better than yesterday.

Up next, about the sixth test to rule out TB. (Or it has been ruled out and they're looking for something else. Got 2 phone calls and mixed messages this evening.) This time a bronchioscopy: a camera on a tube shoved down his gullet to look at his lungs or some such. Ouch.

If I were in the hospital, I'd be hip to the isolation, but my bro's a social guy, so I'm sure it's wearing on him. Healthy thoughts, my boy, healthy thoughts from me to you.
