Omg you’re looking so much better than when I last saw you as we closed the doors on the ambulance as they carted you off on Friday night.

“To the Fletchers who made sure I had everything and more at the hospital, have brought me back to theirs where the whole family are giving me all the love, care, burnt toast (Tom), unlimited supply of @mrsgifletcher clothes along with @tomfletcher sock choice 😜 you could possibly need, lots of drawings and pretend injections from my new doctors Buzz, Buddy and Max.

“Thank you, they really were sent to me,” she declared.
