My wife was told by the doctors that I wouldn’t leave hospital before Easter the following year. I actually was discharged on the 21 Dec after the amazing care I received at Macclesfield. I was 95% blind and unable to walk unassisted. I had gone from 11 stone to just under seven stone. I also had a minor stroke whilst sedated.
I still have treatment every three weeks at Hope Hospital in Salford to assist my immune system as this was damaged by this dreadful disease.
Taking part in the Manchester 10k is something I really need to do to raise money and awareness for MRF and give back something to the people who helped me, Sarah and Oliver through that horrible time. Freya was only a distant twinkle then :-) I really appreciate your support.
Martyn, Sarah, Oliver and now Freya!
