So it was a terrible time and it was a terrible time for my daughter who is 15, going through the beginnings of her GCSEs, scared that Mummy was going to die, single child, what's going to happen you know. And we have such a close relationship that whatever I didn't say she felt. And she took it, as most children do, they get very responsible for their parents which isn't right. And I remember there's a lady who's in her 80s now who met [my daughter] on a bus and she came up to me the next day and she said "You know [my daughter] is very worried about you, she told me about what's wrong and she's very concerned." And [my daughter] doesn't normally, you know we get on really well with the woman but she wouldn't normally go telling her. And she didn't tell me so really that time was terrible, it was a punishment.
