I know nothing about medicine and am just talking off the cuff, but what occurs to me is that "fighting spirit" aside (and I DO think that could be a good thing) being awake and aware that you are in serious condition could be very detrimental to the healing process since you are likely to be screwing up your body chemistry in a way that would not happen if you were just asleep and let the natural body defenses take over. I'm certainly open to correction on this.
