A massive thank you to everyone that was involved and for all the wonderful care that I received. On 01/11/14 I collapsed at work and was eventually brought to QE Hospital after been taken to another hospital first where they suspected it was something to do with my brain. After scans at QE they confirmed I had acute hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain) and brain surgery was urgently required to relieve the pressure in my head as it turned out I was very close to dying. Further brain surgery was then needed to remove a cyst from my brain which was causing the hydrocephalus and this was to be done on 10/11/14. Thank you so much to the neurosurgeon and his team for the surgery and to everyone else too. Also special thanks to everyone on Ward 409. Everyone was so nice and the nurses work non stop and nothing is too much trouble for them. The food was very good and I always looked forward to the next meal. We are all so lucky, especially myself, to have The NHS and all the fantastic staff who work so hard, and I will be eternally thankful to everyone who helped.
