Just 10 more days and Will gets on his British Airways flight and escorted back to Gatwick. It’s been a really long time for him to be in this state and even though he has made some progress he is still very weak and prone to chest infections, requiring his blood oxygen levels to be monitored closely and when necessary go through the painful ordeal of having his chest cleared by suction.
He is surrounded by good energy and positive people who always acknowledge him and talk to him throughout his long days in the heat.
This week we are due to get a confirmation of hospital location and tie up the last loose ends of ambulance clearances at each airport and inform British Airways of the final details.
We are also hoping to hear final acceptance of support from the Midland Air Ambulance Charity who have offered a loan for the final costs which will be paid back from events and donations. We need this money in the bank to keep paying the nurses and costs until he is in the hands of the NHS.
Be prepared to help when he gets home with the most valuable contribution you can make – your time. He will need visits constantly to keep his spirits up and assure him that he is now home with friends and family.
