i travelled from The Midlands to the Northeast at the beginning of May to be my daughters birthing partner...little did I know that within 24 hours of arriving in Cramlington I would be fighting for my life with Pneumonia and sepsis. I was in intensive care for 4 days and spent a total of 11 days in hospital. The doctors in A and E were amazing and so were the nurses. Critical care was scary but all the staff were so competent and calm and never left my side.... then finally to the ward where I realised I couldn't understand the accent and they couldn't understand me!!... But we got on really well!!! By the time I left hospital I had learnt the Ashington accent,...lost a stone,....and gained a wonderful new grandson!!!.....thank you so much wansbeck for saving my life...I can't thank you enough..... on the good work xxx
