Thanks for your good wishes, he is currently back on life support. It is very hard especially for his Mum and his two sisters.

Thinking of you and your family, and hoping he pulls through. [-o<

It's a near and dear subject, as we had a family member struck down with this earlier in the year. Only in her early twenties with a 5mth old baby. Very scary and shocking for us all at first. She has pulled through it though. It's going to be a long road to recovery, and she could get struck down again...which is the hardest part 8-[ She was very strong and determined...whilst we were all 'knocked for 6' with it all. For months it has left her with limited use of one arm and one leg (v similar to stroke victim). She had a stick and a mobility scooter...but none of this bothered her as she felt there were people a lot worse off than her (whilst we cried for her she fought it head on - a very courageous young lady). The only thing that really upset her was not being able to care/hold the baby :cry: She is still not totally 100% fit and has good days and bad days with her mobility, but glad to be alive!

There can be light at the end of the tunnel, and i pray that you get a positive outcome for your loved one as well.

Hollywood, it is great to hear that your family member managed to survive such a difficult experience. My nephew had a cardiac arrest again on Monday. He is at present unresponsive: all we can hang onto is the fact that he is still here almost 6 weeks on. The doctors and nurses have been angels and are trying everything they can. Before Monday he had shown some responses as he came out of coma and did seem to know we were there. AVM's are indeed very similar to strokes. I wish your family well and thank you for reminding us at this difficult time that miracles can happen.
