To hear your wife complain of pins and needles and then 48 hours later to be in the state she was in was just devastating.
It was a bolt out of the blue when they first asked me about switching off the life support.
She had only taken ill on the Friday and on Monday morning I was asked to go into a room.
I knew what they were going to ask, but I said straight away it was far too soon.
They said that she wasn’t responding. A few days later they asked me again while I was sitting at her bedside.
I don’t think that should have been done in earshot of her.
To find out that she had heard what was said was just chilling.
She remembered it word for word. Luckily, she’s gone on to make an incredible recovery, although she always says she’s not inspirational, just stubborn!
I’m so proud of her.’
