Mathilde's father, Count Patrick d'Udekem d'Acoz, in a critical condition

I just read in the newspaper that Mathilde's father is in the hospital.
The palace confirmed, but didn't give more information because it's a private affair.
Here's the article:

Here's the article:
Gazet van Antwerpen – online krant
Apparently the 71 year old Patrick,Count d'Udekem d'Acoz is in a irreversible coma since friday.

How very sad,especially as HRH the Crown Princess is due with her fourth child next month.

Here's the article of the newspaper that brought the news first:
Le père de la princesse Mathilde dans un coma jugé irréversible - Belgique - Actualit� - Le Vif/L'Express
According to their sources he's in an irreverisble coma since last friday, but they don't know what he's suffering from. It doesn't say wether he was ill before of not, just some facts about him and his family.

Count Raoul d'Udekem d'Acoz is saying that the situation of his brother is not as serious as some media are suggesting. He says it is not true that he can Count Patrick is on his deathbed.

How do you know it's a girl? Did Mathilde say that?

What an unfortunate situation. It sounds like he is in good hands and hopefully he will soon recover. How awful for the family though!

It isn't all that sure that Count Raoul is all that well informed, he was only 5 minutes at the bedside of his brother, a few days ago. The situation of Patrick was serious aenough to make his brothers Henri and Raoul forget about the feud and visit him, so..

La Derniere Heure says that Count Patrick has encephalitis, an acute inflammation of the brain, commonly caused by a viral infection.

I´m under the impression Raoul is abusing the situation for yet another “PR stunt” or whatever you may call it. He admitted to have no clue what kind of illness hit his brother, so it´s a bit daring to say he will recover. Even if hope dies last.

Note: These are just rumours but today´s newspapers say it´s either thrombosis or a brain tumor and Mathilde´s father will pass away soon (a question of days according to the news). It seems it all started with signs of aphasia. Whatever it is, it seems there is not much hope for recovery, otherwise there would have been a statement by the family or the court IMO.

I wouldn't know what kind of PR-stunt Count Raoul would need, he seems a likable man, from what I have seen of him on television thus far. But considering the reports in the media it is a bit curious.
