He has done some short periods of walking down the corridor he is in as part of the unit, staying in intensive care.
He is taking steps, talking and has that big smile which we love to see, so he is certainly progressing the right way.
We are keeping in touch. It has been great to see that smile and he continues to get better.
We have to stress that he still has a long way to go, but the improvement has been remarkable and long may that continue.
