Hey guys, thank you for enquiring about Scott following his accident last year. I am his sister so able to give you the most accurate information (the derby telegraph misprinted some of the things I told them again this week)
Scott is, as you rightly say, still in a very serious condition and is likely to be for a very long time. He is healthy generally but has very serious injuries to his brain which kept him in a coma for nearly 5 months and still classed as minimally concious.
It means a lot that people are out there supporting him, and as we know what a fighter he is, we are positive that he will one day be able to walk and talk (although we do understand that this will be a very long time if it is to happen - ie decades rather than months)
Ioncewasgood - hope your friend is still continuing to make progress after 25 years, never give up hope, technology is improving all the time and the brain is so complex they are always learning and recovering.
Please keep following Scotts progress and the work of the Trust at www.riderdown.co.uk
and thank you once again for the support. Any questions please feel free to ask x x x
