Others have offered support

Political advisor Derek, 53, was in hospital for a year first battling the virus and then the horrifying after-effects of the disease.

For long periods Kate and her children – Darcey and Billy – did not know if he was going to come home or not.

“How lovely, I thought, although it seemed utterly surreal.”
