    I just wanted to share some good news about Dan’s Dad. He’s suffered with chronic fatigue for almost 20 years, which Dr’s thought was the effect of various cancer therapies. I’ve only ever known him to walk with two walking sticks, or get around in a wheelchair.

    He’s had a tough 6 months in and out of A&E. Last week the AMAZING NHS fitted him with a pacemaker. Its still very early days, but his response has been so incredible. He goes out for little walks up and down his street, and can’t wait to build up some fitness. His skin has a warm glow and I don’t think he’s stopped smiling.

    I can only imagine what it must feel like to be suddenly gifted a new burst of energy.
    Wishing everyone and their families good health. Long live the NHS!
