It's been a rough 24 hours (cont'd..) We ended up staying here in the hospital with #Eric last night as late as we could because he was in so much pain. I fell asleep in a chair (cont'd..) next to his bed and then ended up going to sleep in the waiting room. The hospital kicked us out and sent us home probably around 3, even (cont'd..) tho visiting hours ended way before that. Eric has been battling a few different issues and has been very uncomfortable. He has an NG tube (cont'd..) that runs thru his nose down into his stomach and there's been blood running thru it 4 the past 24 hours. They've been trying 2 figure out (cont'd..) where the blood is coming from, so today they are going to scope him. He has been very anxious and says that he can't breathe well. I've (cont'd..) noticed it looks blue under his eyes again so I believe him when he says he is not getting enough oxygen. They just took him off the (cont'd..) respirator yesterday. I've noticed he has been stockpiling things --- like water, or ice. He is not happy if he only has one cup of it in (cont'd..) front of him, he wants to see the entire pitcher full. I asked my Mom and one of the doctors why they think this is and they say two things. (cont'd..) 1. he has very little control over anything right now, so if he can control how much water is in his pitcher, he will 2. you would be acting (cont'd..) like this too if you had been in the hospital for a month straight, not knowing whether it's day or night, or what day of the week it is. (cont'd..) The Dr said she actually thinks that he is handling things well, give the circumstances. But like I said before, there is nothing harder (cont'd..) in this world than watching a loved one suffer. #Eric is sleeping now, but the plan is to scope him when he wakes up so they can figure out (cont'd..) whats going on with this internal bleed. Wish us luck. And thank you as always 4 ur support. U have no idea how much it means to us. xo

So I'm here in the hospital and I'm so grateful that I got to see #ERIC. He is doing well and I told him that everyone on Twitter is ... (cont'd..) pulling for him. I know he REALLY appreciates it because he had the biggest smile on his face... and then he fell asleep! LOL Its good (cont'd..) though he definitely needs his rest. I just want to thank everyone again on behalf of the DLC family, it's really tough on them (cont'd..) and being here and actually seeing what is happening to both #ERIC and his mom, V is being really strong for both of them. (cont'd..) It's mentally tough and physically tough. I would not wish this upon another family. Thank you again for your support for #ERIC

Just got back from the hospital and I was happy to see #ERIC one more time b4 I left. #ERIC was more awake this time (cont'd..) and we were able to reminisce about our childhood w/my yngr bro. It was good to laugh with him, #ERIC said some funny things.

Mickey Frklic tweets on from TweetDeck
@siahoney So he is able to speak again? That is great news! And laughing, that's a plus! #ERIC

Quick update: They are transfusing #Eric right now, trying to figure out how much blood he is losing. Once they get some numbers back they (cont'd..) will figure out if they will scope him or not. It is very risky for them to considering his condition, so they are trying to be cautious. (cont'd..) We should know more in a few hours #ERIC

Veronica De La Cruz tweets on from TweetDeck
They are transfusing him still and they have one more pint before they measure his hematocrit again. It takes about 2 hours per pint so we (cont'd..) should know something around 10p pst. Thx 4 standing with us. xo

siahoney tweets on from TweetDeck
When I left #ERIC they were still transfusing him. By now they should be finishd and all I wish is to be w/him & V to see his results (cont'd..) But #ERIC does look a lot better than when I saw him in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago. (cont'd..) What crushed my heart #ERIC prayed for those less fortunate than him & he prayed to make it another night... tears

siahoney tweets on from TweetDeck
