Carol Barnes 'close to death'

Following on from my previous post, the Daily Mail reveals that newsreader Carol Barnes is unlikely to survive after suffering a massive stroke. Friends have disclosed that doctors predict she will not survive. A friend said, "It is very serious indeed and things are not looking good. She has not been given long. Everyone is absolutely devastated."

I remember my father's stay in hospital. It is very much a waiting game, with every day bringing slightly different news, but with reality telling you that nothing much has changed. I felt that recovery in his case was not a pleasant option. Years in a recuperating state, not being the person you were. Strokes are very cruel afflictions. I can feel for her family at this time.
