“I was admitted to hospital with a serious infection on Monday 5th September. I am wearing the Swindon Town shirt given to me as part of the Football Fans in Training course.
“This inspires me although I’m going through a very traumatic time, and not being able to run or play tennis for a while.
“I am being looked after well at the Great Western Hospital. I am looking forward to Luke and Ross visiting me this evening (Monday) and I would like to thank them especially.”
