    Latest brother report

    Ron is back home. He is not co-operating with his medical regimen of medications and he wound up in ER last night for 5 hours. I am, or was, at a continuing ed seminar 100 miles away. I drove up the mountain last night. Stayed the night and morning and got him squared away with his medications. I am back at me (expensive) seminar trying to get as much out of it as possible. I will commute back and forth the next three days and then stray with him until he sees his neurosurgeon in a week or so.

    Being the big sister. He will have a bigger headache if he doesn't start to behave!

    Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. Please keep them coming. I have lots of driving to do and am very tired. And Ron needs to experience that playing by the rules is in his best interests.

    No, Larry. He is 6" taller and 100 pounds heavier. But he is my younger brother. Some things stay the same.

    It's called tough love! Tell him to shape up or you'll have Larry drop by to have a talk with him!!!

    remind him that he has two choices, follow the doctor's instructions, or die. That's not hard to understand.
    Cheers,

    Roger has it all as explicitly as it can be said. Tough Love, and sometimes we need it. God Bless both of you, and his whole medical staff.

    Aloha, Tony.
