He's got a fiance who is pg right now. He's one of our best workers. A huge bright light at work. He can cheer anyone up. He's just so happy. Everyone loves him. He's got a great attitude, and sense of humor, AND WORKS HARD!!! He will come in anytime. He will stay however longer it takes.
I guess last night he was drinking again. He drank himself back into a similar state. He's in ICU right now. He might not make it. I really care about this guy. He's one of my best friends at work. He... He really is a great person.
Oh please, can you all help him, and his fiance. She's 16. Those kids grew up fast, and he was really trying to keep himself out of trouble. Why/how he got ahold of alcohol... nobody knows. He wasn't supposed to be drinking at all. Eventhough he did bring this on himself, he still needs some help. He made a bad choice, I fear he will again.
My boss got to go in and see him because his mom told them she was his aunt. She said his hands are purple and hot she said. She has worked as an EMT, and cannot think of what this means. She's completely beside herself right now. She takes everything with her workers very seriously, and personal. She could also use a few thoughts.
I'm sorry, I know it's not directly my problem, but I am scared right now. I'm having a little problem composing myself right now. All I can seem to do at the moment okay is cry.
He's an apache, and both of us having native blood in us... I feel pretty close to him. Oh I hope he makes it. We always have so much fun at work. HIS Little brother is covering his shift tonight. I'm expecting he won't be operating at 100% tonight. I hope he's okay.
When he was born, he was born deformed. The middle of his ribcage, where his ribs meed goes in. His heart isn't fully developed. His organs operate at 50%. WHY? Why...... WHY was he drinking. I just wish he was okay so I could hit him upside the head and ask him ::censor::censor::censor:: He was thinking.
Thanks for listening.

I truly hope you can all pull through this and I think your boss is fantastic for taking the time and emotional strain of her employees. You are all in my thoughts.
Alchol looks so inoccent and is given such a good press but the down side is forgotten about unfortunately.
