Last quote by Alison Murdoch

Out of the blue, Simon was stricken with encephalitis, and for weeks lay comatose in intensive care, kept alive by machines. Then he turned a corner. It was a blanket that brought me out of my cold fear. Not a fluffy, warm, cosy blanket but a thin comfortless rectangle of cotton designed to survive a high-temperature wash. But still, a blanket! The majority of patients in the intensive care ward at St Thomas’ hospital are far too sick for blankets. “He indicated that he was cold,” explained Simon’s latest nurse, unaware of the significance of what she was saying. After five weeks in a life-threatening coma, my 58-year-old husband had finally reconnected with the outside world. I was no longer facing years of loneliness, the loss of the person I love most in the world, or the possibility that his brain was so damaged he would never speak to me again.feedback
