A huge gaping hole had developed in his body.Septic shock had set in. Not only that, his internal organs became so hot that they blew up and exploded.The carer came to see him, rang the door, but no answer, so she got out the master key and opened up the door. She came in and got a terrible shock when she saw the gaping hole in the man's body. she called the ambulance and they rushed Brian to hospital. He was put into intensive care and had to have emergency surgery. The surgeons set about repairing the burst organs and gave him 500 pints of blood and huge amounts of fluid. He was also put on massive doses of antibiotics.
When the operation was over the surgeons explained the illness to the carer. They said that:
"Another hour and he would have died. Luckily you, Brain's carer, called the ambulance.They had to rush him to hospital, going at a speed of 120 miles and hour.
