Originally saw this today on Prog Magazine Readers Facebook Discussion feed, posted from admin at Jon Hiseman’s Colosseum website (where they mentioned a 2nd neurosurgery!):
This is from the admin of Jon Hiseman’s Colloseum page – Jon Hiseman is seriously ill…

Apologies for the ‘radio silence’ for a few days. The reason is that last Monday, Jon Hiseman’s situation changed radically. He had a a brain haemorrhage… an absolute emergency situation with the crash team involved. A second brain surgery was carried out to remove a large blood clot from the left “good” side of the brain . He was returned to Intensive Care and (as I understand it) put into a coma. A CT scan was carried out, which fortunately showed no damage to his brain. He remains in a coma while his team of doctors, surgeons and neuro specialists monitor his condition and decide their next move.
I have no other details at the moment, but will post updates as and when I get more information.
I’d just like to add this:
“Hope springs eternal in the human breast.” So said Alexander Pope, whose dictum is still as profound as it is poetic.
Hope is a powerful life force which enables us to face and overcome challenges. The belief one holds during difficult circumstances that things will get better.
but then only afterwards found this, from sometime ago now:
explaining why he needed a 1st neurosurgery to start off with (as if that wasn’t bad enough news in itself at the time)!
Let’s hope for better news soon though!
