"Paging Dr. House"

We are living a real-life episode of HOUSE.
And I now understand how frustrated the characters on the show can get with the medical field.

Brandon is now Day 4 in the hospital and I can not count the number of specialists (and specialties) that have come in to offer their opinions and hypotheses.

And they are all different... Everything from heart problem (which it is not) to ulcer, to gall stones, to perforated bowels, to stomach ileus, to liver issue.....and the list goes on.

Meanwhile, we have the patient - Brandon is still in horrible pain, getting more frustrated and agitated by the minute, going through test after test to gather additional clues to this abdominal mystery.

I think we can safely assume Brandon is not pregnant.

So I would like to page Dr. House and his team - Please come see us and come up with your brilliant Brandon can finally feel better and get home.


  1. How completely frustrating.
    I can't even imagine what you're going through.
    There will be a doctor who will find out what this is. You couldn't be in a better medical facility and we are sending love and prayers that this nightmare comes to a quick and happy end.
    Lots of hugs,
    Angie and Lee

  2. "Please Dr House - help Brandon be pain free and get him home feeling better and healthy ASAP!!!!"
    Thinking of you and hoping things look better very soon.

  3. Two days ago, Joe said exactly the same thing to me about Dr. House. I pray that he can come home soon and enjoy an extended period pain free. I miss my smiling, chatty, positive Brandon. I miss my son! Bring him back to me SOON.

  4. Sounds like you got Doogie Howser instead of House. Thinking of you guys and sending hugs and good vibes.

  5. to all of you,
    iwe returned home hoping to hear Brandon's positive comments about life and the news shoked us. we pray and hope that this terrible time will come to a happy end and sweet brandon will be home lighting up the room with his smile.
    love you all
