Exclamation Scumbag aka Scummy aka MisterBag

Some of you here will remember "Scumbag" (although he hasn't posted here in over 10 years).

About a week ago he suffered a massive hemorrhagic stroke, and was rushed to hospital, where they operated to relieve pressure on his brain.

Current prognosis is, despite having a "catastrophic brain injury" (Doctors' words not mine), he is doing remarkably well:
He has movement in all four limbs.
He is aware of conversations around him.
He is responding well to external stimulus.
He is off the ventilator and breathing for himself.

Not bad, all things considered. But still a long way to go:
Hasn't opened his eyes yet
Isn't speaking yet (but then again, the breathing tube has only just been removed).
(The extent of the damage is unknown at this stage).

The main success factor was he suspected he was having a stroke, and did the FAST test.

Thanks Rincey, everything crossed for Scummy's recovery and his family at this time.

Scummy was quite the regular on the LAN scene back in the day, sadly his talent didn't quite qualify him for Clan Hurricane beyond honouree status
