New reason for the 3rd to suck

I am a lot freaked out this evening. My SIL's fiance had a heart attack this morning. He is 35 years old and other than being a smoker, is relatively healthy. He collapsed at the end of a 5K charity run and so got medical attention immediately (well before he would have pretty much anywhere else). He is in the hospital in a medically induced coma and the prognosis is very scary.

They are 4 hours away so it's not like we can just swing by the hospital and give the SIL a hug, but really I don't know what to do. I have more of an idea of what to do if the worst happens but while they are stuck in a this horrible limbo, I just don't know. I can't be one of the people naively saying "He'll be okay, it will all be fine." That would be like denying the events of the last 2 plus years of my life. Any ideas out there?

I don't have any ideas, I'm sorry. What a scary time for everyone. Maybe just let your SIL know you are available (via phone) if she needs to talk? Thinking of you and your family.

I agree the only thing I could think of is a phone call. to ask about him.... see how your sister in law is. Just to make her know you are there.

That is horrible. I hope he is OK. I am thinking of your family. xxx
