Garry McGiven is currently in St Richards Hospital Chichester, Saturday, 25th-August-2018 recovering from severe sepsis shock. Now I don’t know what everybody knows or doesn’t! I don’t know too much myself! So please forgive me if I repeat everything you already know. I was admitted to St Richard’s hospital in excruciating pain on the 22nd of July and had no idea what was causing it!
After spending a few days in hospital being passed from ward to ward, the ugly truth of what was wrong with me reared its head! I had severe sepsis shock, and the organs in my body were rapidly starting to shut down! I was then put into an induced coma and on a respirator for a week. Not that I remember any of that; it’s just what I’ve been told! But apparently, I’m lucky to still be here! But that’s all in the past, and I obviously survived.
I’ve now got months of recovery to look forward to both in hospital and at home. So it could be a while before I’m back on the bike, but never fear, I will return at some point! It’s just I’m finding everything hard to do at the moment! And please don’t think I’m ignoring you; if you’ve sent me a message, I will reply.
