‘He’s been taken ill... he’s in a coma ... fighting for his life ... still critically ill... in a very critical condition ... no change ... still seriously ill... still hasn’t regained consciousness ... is responding to treatment... off the danger list... showing signs of coming round ... making progress ... his condition is satisfactory ... he’s come out of the coma ... he’s as well as can be expected ... comfortable ... no change ... he’s turned the comer ... he’s on the mend.’

‘We all wish you a speedy recovery ... get well soon ... we’re glad you’re over it.’

‘The worst is over ... he’s almost completely recovered ... he’s practically cured ... he’s convalescing ... coming along nicely ... he’ll be on his feet again soon ... he’ll be out and about again in a few days.’

‘He’s had a relapse ... he’s no better ... he’s getting worse ... his condition is deteriorating ... he’s getting weaker ... he’s slipping away ... fading fast... his life is hanging by a thread ... it’s just a matter of time ... he could go at any second!’
