Hello everyone, I've just joined..

A good friend of mine is currently in Triage.. A few days ago, he and another young man got into a terrible fight, and my friend ended up getting stabbed. Both boys were seriously injured, and there is a LOT of damage -- They almost died.

At the moment, the aggressor, Mark, is currently doing well on his IV. But the 'Defender', my good friend Cristofer, is rejecting the IV. The doctors don't understand why, and he is getting weaker and weaker.. Two of the nurses - the audacity! - had the nerve to mention that he 'Most likely won't make it' within earshot of the one loved by Cristofer. Of course this sent her into hysterics.

Some backstory.. Criss is the very spirit of Generosity. He most recently served to protect a boy who was stalked by someone who wished him dead. Criss is a Giver, VASTLY under-appreciated, and one of the most calm, most loving people anyone could ever meet. But I sometimes feel that he is slowly 'willing' himself to die, even in his Comatose status. He lost his father years ago. His mother hung herself on Christmas Eve, and his twin-brother was killed by a lover. Yes, there is a lot of drama surrounding this man and his friends, who have all been on the 'brink of death'. But never like this, and we are all terrified..

Does anyone believe that a specialist might find out a reason why he is rejecting the IV? At the moment, the doctors have no idea. They do not believe he is allergic to it, and they haven't mentioned if any internal injuries might be blocking the nourishment.

Whenever one of them gets into a crisis like this, I usually have a 'good-feeling'. I help to boost their confidence in a positive outcome, as well as that of those that surround them, and it's worked well so far. But Criss is, by far, my best friend. Roughly around the same age as me, though a few years younger, at 24. He is the little brother I've never had, and I REFUSE to lose this boy to the gods.

Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated..

Thank you for your time.
