It was somewhat unusual that Kevin K hadn’t responded to recent posts but he emailed earlier today and, with his permission, I am copying his email below, which makes me well up every time I read it.
Below is a quick summary of what has been occurring with our family of the past few weeks.
Maureen, Jason and I contracted Coronavirus towards the end of December. Jason, fortunately, had minor symptoms and with a few supplements was able to stave off the infection. Maureen was worse affected but she is a strong lady and after a few days she managed to overcome the infection.
Me, I was taken to hospital by ambulance on the evening of 30th December and ended up seriously ill with Covid 19. A soon as I went into hospital I set my mind to get out again and carry on with the rest of my life. I could not have done this without the support of my family,
BUT equally important I could not have done it without the dedication and determination of the Doctors, Nurses and other staff at West Mid. Hospital. They really did save my life.
With their help and support I was discharged from Hospital on the evening of Sunday 10th January and Maureen brought me back home. I am currently recuperating at home. I am not sure how long this is going to take but I know that I have the ongoing support of both my family and the NHS. (A Doctor even called me at home from the hospital yesterday lunchtime to see how I was progressing).
I was delighted to read that Cambridge Park members are already having their vaccinations. You never know, they might finally get round to my age group! I will be first in the queue when the time comes.
I was looking at the news this morning and a Minister made a comment which I believe is particularly relevant – behave as if you have the virus and could spread it to someone else.
KEEP SAFE & WELL.
Well done to Jason, Maureen, Kevin and the brilliant NHS. We love all of you!
