"He, whilst in isolation, has become a little scared of walking on his frame, we are doing daily walks to build his confidence and strength back up.

"We have set him a goal of walking 3 miles outside and near our house within the next 2 weeks."

His family said it's a "big goal" but he's "determined he can do this if he works hard".
