"This Blog Dedicated To My Nephew"


The night of March 31 2011 and one of my nephews a 39 year old father of two was found unconscious on a pavement out side a local club. He had suffered a fractured skull with life threatening brain damage. It was the quick work of the paramedics that saved his life plus the quick work of the A&E at a Berkshire Hospital. My nephew had to be transferred to a ICU ward at Oxford from which he was moved to a Wycombe Hospital when another ICU bed became vacant. When he started getting better my nephew was moved to a bed in the stroke ward. Unfortunately he started fitting and banged his head and suffered more brain damage. After returning to Oxford then back to Wycombe my nephew is now in another hospital. Only last week he had the replacement of the piece of skull that had been removed to ease the swelling on his brain. Unfortunately we have been told that when he is discharged from hospital he will need a constant 24 /7 care at home . Hopefully sound judgement will prevail on the perpetrator who has been charged with ABH without intent. One stupid moment and now so much upset.

Very sorry but as for names of flowers I have a limited knowledge of their names

Our prayers are with you and lets prove them wrong.
Bless GOU members who viewed these few photos
