    Thank you. I knew he was probably referring to a clot of some kind, but didn't know precisely.

    That is rough ... I'm sorry you have to go through so much pain.

    I imagine your brother is thinking, "If I don't go on the vent, what will my brother think?"
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    ....... I'm so sorry Markpals

    Oh, a man is placed upon the steps, a baby cries
    and high above you can hear
    the church bells start to ring
    and as the heaviness, oh the heaviness, the body settles in
    somewhere you can hear a mother sing

    then it's one foot then the other
    as you step out onto the road of hope
    step out on the road
    how much weight? how much?
    then it's how long? and how far?
    and how many times oh, before it's too late?

    calling all angels calling all angels
    walk me through this one
    don't leave me alone
    calling all angels calling all angels
    we're tryin' and we're hopin'
    but we're not sure how...

    ah, and every day you gaze upon the sunset
    with such love and intensity
    why it's ah, it's almost as
    if you could only crack the code
    then you'd finally understand what this all means

    ah, but if you could...do you think you would
    trade in all, all the pain and suffering?
    ah, but then you'd miss
    the beauty of the light upon this earth
    and the sweetness of the leaving

    calling all angels calling all angels
    walk me through this one
    don't leave me alone
    calling all angels calling all angels
    we're tryin' and we're hopin'
    but we're not sure...

    calling all angels calling all angels
    walk me through this one
    don't leave me alone
    calling all angels calling all angels
    we're tryin' we're hopin'
    we're hurtin' we're lovin'
    we're cryin' we're callin'
    cause we're not sure how this goes
