“I’ve had a tracheotomy put in. My voice has got better the past two days but its a bit better now, I am out of breath that’s because I’m speaking quite a lot.
‘In regard to recovery my mobility is not the best I’ve had to learn how to walk again. I am able to walk around the house. Today I’m going to walk down the street. In comparison to what I’ve watched and other people I’m doing quite well.’
