Hi Folks - posting on behalf of a fellow UConn alum and Boneyarder. @Uconnsdabest has been more of a lurker than a poster, but always a constant presence here.

In the last few years, his family has dealt with brain cancer and paralysis and seizures, and that should be enough for one family. But now he has come down with severe lung infection (non-COVID related) and has been on a ventilator for a week+. He's been airlifted from Middlesex to Hartford, and now Hartford to Boston.

I hope that he recovers enough (and soon) to be able to read this and be annoyed that I shared it.

Please send positive thoughts... if so inclined, a GoFundMe has been set up to assist the family with what will surely be countless medical bills.


Thank you,
Mike

The ECMO machine saved my sister's life. She went into non-COVID related lung failure in May, was on ECMO and in an induced coma for 6 weeks and recently just came home. He is in good hands and on a miraculous piece of equipment.

Here is a video that shows the power and success of the ECMO machine.

Received word that treatment is starting to work and he’s been able to come out of sedation at times and open his eyes. One step at a time.
That machine works magic. If he’s out of sedation already, even for a couple minutes, that’s a great sign. They wouldn’t do that if they didn’t think he could handle it.
