Vincent
« on: 14 January, 2019, 10:22:23 am »
I'm not aware that he's spent any time on the forum, but many UK convention goers will know Vincent Mallia from his cosplaying.

He has recently suffered a stroke and is in hospital.  He's in a bad way.  His sister is going to discuss his condition with the consultants today.  If you know him and want any more information, PM me and I can give a few more details.

I'm wishing for a miracle here so that Vincent will be able to recover. Sending love and hope.
New to the forum & still quite new to 2000AD, but there is a collection of comics older than me in residence.

For anybody who does know Vincent, here's an update.

As he is now breathing on his own, the doctors will be taking him off of the ventilator.  This doesn't mean that he has regained consciousness.  In the hours after coming off the ventilator he could have a cardiac arrest or any number of other complications.  His sister has asked the doctors to delay taking him off the ventilator until Thursday morning to give everybody one last chance to visit tomorrow (Wednesday 16th January)

Intensive Care, 1st floor
National Hospital For Neurology and Neurosurgery
Queen Square
London
WC1N 3BG

Visiting hours are from 12:00 until 19:00.  Only two visitors allowed at a time, so if you visit in a large group be aware that you'll have to take turns going in.

Just had a text from Julie (Vince's sister).

The tube is out
vince is breathing but very laboured
I've been told it is the beginning of the end and sadly could be hours or days at most. I'm happy if anyone wants to pop by but you'd have to be tough stuff
I don't want people crying in front of him, any suggestion of music you think he'd like that I can play to him to lighten the atmosphere would be appreciated.
