My nephew is critical and on life support-please help!
Hello, I hope you do not mind me contacting you. I have no idea if you can help me but I am desperate. I will try to be brief - my 20 year old nephew has been in an induced coma with seizures for over 4weeks. He was thought to have viral encephalitis, something now the docs are not sure of, and has been having seizures constantly since admittance to hospital. He is critical but in good physical condition, having just had c-dif and 1/2 his bowel removed. I am hoping you may be able to give me or Frenchay some advice on his condition. We are all so scared we are going to lose him and love him so much.
