"Bubba" Calvin Wade Garrett

Calvin Wade Garrett is my brother legally and emotionally and my cousin biologically. He is only 29 years old. He was in Houston, TX working as a pipeliner. He was stabbed in the early morning of May 24, 2015. He was stabbed in the neck and chest. When he was stabbed in the neck, a major artery was cut. He was dead for 4 minutes but revived. He was careflighted to the hospital where he underwent a 4 hour surgery to repair the artery. His brain was swelling so they did a 2 hour surgery to remove a bone in his skull. This didn't help so they did another procedure and placed a tube in his brain to drain the fluid. They have tried multiple medical remedies to try to lower the pressure on his brain but none of them are helping. The doctors gave us little hope at first and said that if he did somehow survive this that he would be on life support for the rest of his life. Now they have told us there is nothing more they can do. We have decided to let him go tonight at 11pm. He is an organ donor so I'm hoping somehow this will help someone else in the future. Bubba loved to help others. He was a volunteer firefighter and he would drive in storms just to find people to pull out of ditches or take them somewhere or help them in anyway he could. He would do anything to help anyone. He was a carefree, loving, redneck kind of guy that loved everyone. He always did what he wanted to even when it scared all of us. He was going blind but that never stopped him from doing anything. He loved to make people laugh and he was so good at it too. He loved to travel. He was a hard worker. He did more in his 29 years than I will ever do in my whole life. We love you Bubba and I miss you so much already! We are asking for help for his medical and funeral expenses. Any amount will help. If you can't donate that's okay but please pray for our family.
