Dear Mum & Dad
Sorry I didn’t write yesterday but so much has happened. The man came back yesterday as arranged. We had spoken to the doctor and he said that if we felt it was OK for the man to visit her then he would go along with it.
We told the man – Peter Stuart-Lawson is his name – that he could see Janine for a few minutes if he came with us. He agreed. When we got to the hospital he came in with two of us. For a moment he just stood and looked at her and then, before either of us could stop him, he stepped forward and kissed Janine on the lips. While he was still bending over her he whispered – ‘Janine, my love, it’s Peter. I’m here.’
We both heard him …… and so did Janine! For the first time since we found her she opened her eyes. He kissed her again and said something like … ‘I’ll never leave you again’.
It was like magic because Janine answered him! ‘Peter’, she said, ‘Hello’.
We were dumbfounded and the doctor was equally surprised. He did some tests there and then and pronounced Janine perfectly well! She is being kept in for a few more days – just for observation – but the doctor says she’ll be home for the week-end!
What a wonderful day.
