I'm new, my name is Andy and a single dad of 3 sons. Identical twins aged 7 and a singleton aged 5.
In 3 day time, it will be 3 months since my youngest son Zac suffered brain injuries in a freak accident at a swimming pool and is still in a coma on a children's ward.
From what I remember Zac was walking into the swimming pool area from the changing rooms and slipped head first onto the floor in front of me and his identical twin brothers.
Zac suffered two separate bleeds on the brain 5 days apart from each other, both needing emergency surgery and he spent a month in intensive care before being move to the children's ward.
My identical twin sons understand that their brother is in a deep sleep from hurting his head and can't wake up but will do when he is ready to, they are allowed to visit their brother. I allowed them to do this when Zac was moved to the children's ward.
I also have a supportive group of friends and a girlfriend who have been taking it in turns to visit Zac in hospital when I can't due to the hours I work.
Have already spoken to headway who have sent me the relevant information, that I have already read.
Will update you as soon as they is any change in Zac's condition.
