Just since news seems to have spread a little, here is a brief announcement.

On Tuesday morning my brother collapsed as a result of complications from his illness. His heart stopped for a while and he was clinically dead at the scene before being resuscitated. He has not regained consciousness since. There is no hope of recovery. Presently he is resting peacefully in a hospice with family.

While I do appreciate your thoughts and good wishes, I am unlikely to reply at present, focussing on family needs.
