Entry in online diary: Worst nightmare

Update: 27 July 2004

Alan has been having seizures since he came out of his 14-hour surgery. He was taken for an emergency scan last night and I have now been told to prepare for the worst scenario – that he may not wake up at all. And if he does then it’s not known how much damage he may have sustained, but it would seem the damage affects his whole brain and not just part of it.

This is my worst nightmare. Yet I thought I’d already had that.
