Need positive vibes please

I came home from work today and my BF met me at the door crying. He told me that a very close friend of ours had collapsed at work and was in the hospital in the critical care wing. He has some kind of aneurysm between the 2 frontal lobes and there is some hemhorraging and some other stuff I didn't really understand completely, we were all just kinda in shock when the doctor came in. I mean, I'm only 25 and our friend is only 24 and I've just never really thought about that sort of thing actually happening at our age (even though I know that it does). Anyway, my friend is sedated and the doctors are waiting on some test results to decide when to take him to surgery. They said he was doing really well for someone in that situation. We went and saw him tonight and it was pretty sad.

I would appreciate it if you all would send your most positive vibes his way. We've got friends lined up to stay with him 24/7 and my BF and I will be back over there tomorrow.

So sorry to hear that. It sounds like your friend is surrounded by people who really care for him. I will be praying for him.

Well, we didn't get any calls last night so I am assuming there is no change in his condition... no news is good news I guess. I'll be at the hospital later on and I'll keep you guys posted if I get to a computer today. Thanks so much for the good vibes and prayers.

Ok, weird question... does anyone know if you can donate long dreadlocks to Locks of Love? He's got a head full of phat dreads that the doctors will have to shave off for the surgery and he's told us in the past that if he ever had to shave them off he wanted to donate them.
