My brother called last night and said that one of my ex bf?s shot himself yesterday. One of our old neighbors, his ex wife, and her friend went over to his house yesterday morning and found him in a pool of blood and convulsing. He apparently shot himself in the head and they ended up life flighting him to the hospital. I just found out that he barely made it through the night. He is reacting to a flashlight and is slightly moving his legs but it will be 24 hours or not until they decide whether or not there is enough brain activity to keep him going. The sad thing is he has custody of their son. This was TOTALLY unexpected. Even if I hadnt spoken to him in a few years it is totally sad. I know nothing excuses him doing this to himself but I am hoping they can save him and get him the help he needs so he is around for his son.
