Some shocking news....

This is my brother Matthew
He lives in Port Macquarie.

I had a phone call on Tuesday Night from John Hunter Hospital telling me that they were taking him into surgery to remove a blood clot on his brain.
We had no idea that anything had happened.
Despite the fact that his family in Port had my phone number,
no one felt it was their responsibility to let us know what had happened.
So the first idea was this call from the surgeon.
(I am also his next of kin, so I should have been informed when its life threatening!!)

He was taken to Port Hospital unconscious and then he went into a Coma
so they sent him onto John Hunter after scans revealed the blood clot.

Anyway, he has been in and had the clot removed
and there is another clot deeper in his brain that they wont worry about at this stage.
If he recovers, they will go after that one later.
He is yet to regain consciousness from the first instance of the attack.

But things are kinda at a stand still at the moment,
its all just wait and see.
I went down there on Friday and there is nothing you can do.
He is under sedation and on life support.

This all came about cause he had been targeted by a group of men.
The first attempt on his life was made two or so weeks ago when three of them bashed him and left him in the camp fire.
This latest one is still being investigated by the police, but without speculating, we know he was knocked off his push bike either by a person from a car, or by the car itself, they are looking into.

So things aren't looking good for him at this stage,
If he does come out of it, recovery and rehabilitation will be months and months.
But we hope for the best outcome for him. 
Thats all we can do at this stage..
