23rd April 2006

Watching and waiting.

Tom doesn't stir but is moved onto his side at regular intervals. Family float in and out and the routine of PICU now features us. I look more closely at the obs chart and see the word 'coma' as part of the 'Glasgow coma scale'. I see Tom's score but it means nothing. I overhear consultants on teaching rounds discussing scores and trying to interpret. Nik and I alternate between weeping and soothing each other. We wait. So does Tom.
