After dozens of blood tests, x-rays, scans etc the doctors have finally decided that Roy has encephalitis. He's being pumped full of antibiotics, antivirals and painkillers and has now just left intensive care and is on a ward. Thankfully he can now speak again and is coherent but is still immobile. His right hand has still to be sutured but that probably won't happen for another week, and he has to have another lumbar puncture. He's also getting fed up so must be feeling a bit better. His daughter is still here with me so at least have company and don't have time to sit and brood! I could do with a decent night's sleep though.
