  • I will def keep him in my preyers and Im so sorry. There are many sweet women on here that put a prayer in for my 19 yr old brother not too long ago when he was careflighted cause of a motorcycle accident. But the hospital did tell us something, they said it wasnt looking good but continued to operate on him for 4 hrs. Seeing him in the icu was very hard and theres nothing that can prepare you for something like that but hopefully your brother wasnt as bad off as mine or atleast we prey he isnt. Hang in there, my brother made it out of the hospital 4 months later and that was all thanks to god and to everyone who preyed for him.

  • From what I can figure out online, liver rupture normally caused by impact trauma or a complication of disease (like HELLP or a perforated gastric ulcer); and the danger is internal bleeding and liver tissue dying (necrosis) from the lack of oxygenated blood.
