Update on my brother. He is still in the hospital in Cooperstown. He is still fighting a case of pneumonia. He is very tired from a shortage of blood, but they don't know where the blood is going. So, he's anemic. They have done many, many tests, blood transfusions, and still no clear plan to get him well. They are doing a colonscopy and upper GI tomorrow to see if he has a small bleed somewhere. They haven't tackled the heart issue yet because he's pretty weak. Fever on and off, shortness of breath, nauseated. He has new heart damage that he didn't have a year ago. He's only 61.
