No words

I am at the point of zero patience so this will be a very straight forward and emotionless update - that's all I can handle right now...

  • Liver complications (from feeding tube that they had to stop)
  • Kidney complications (from antivirals)
  • Delirious - suspect either shingles (for the 3rd time) or infection in his brain
  • Sleeps all the time
  • When awake has no idea what is going on
  • Shits and pees himself in the bed and not even aware of it
  • Can't speak properly
  • Repeats answers (they assume due to the brain issues)
  • Can hardly move (not even to lift his own arm)
  • Trouble remembering the kids' names
  • Says kids are 18 and 17

All Dr's keep repeating is "he is very sick"

Scared shitless!


  1. I am praying for all of you. Brandon- hang in there- you are a fighter!!! We all love you very much.

  2. Praying that g-d will have some mercy!

  3. I hate that this is happening to him. I love him so much and am so upset. I will continue to pray. Taly, stay strong- I am here for you always!

  4. To Taly, Brandon, and all of your family. Please keep fighting, please hang in there. I pray for you every day, and love all of you.

  12. Taly,

  13. Taly, no wife should ever have to see their loving husband suffer the way you have and no parent should have to see their son / son-in-law suffer the way they have. Life is so unfair right now, I wish there could be something we could all do. Your strength and love is such an inspiration and motivation to so many people, please never give that up. I only hope and pray Brandon does the same. We are channeling all our positive energy your way.

    All our love,
    Ryan, Naomi, Jordy, & Kylie Gerstel

    All our love

  14. Every day is a privilege, we all were lucky in life to have the privilege of knowing you. God bless you and your family.
