    My Uncle

    My uncle just turned 47 and is fighting for his life, he has Acute Respiratory syndrome and pancreatitis. I was just on vacation and visited him for 2 weeks in Florida and he seemed fine, so this is hitting me like a ton of bricks. I just got off the phone with his wife and he has a 50/50 chance to live. Sorry for posting this, i just needed to vent, this place has been good to me over the years, letting me cry out so to speak.

    You've had some tough times.

    I hope your uncle pulls through. Stay positive

    What causes those things, anyway?

    From what's been described, I think it's Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome brought on by the pancreatitis. In contrast SARS is caused by a virus.

    Rch pancreatitis is very treatable, the ARS is a complication from the ventilator. If he's strong he should do ok. I'll be sending some prayers. Hang on to hope, and the skill of those taking care of him...
