"Never take things for granted, always be there for others and it's made me appreciate life so much.
"The little things in life are more important then the big ones. Love and caring is all we need.
"Happy new year to every one and let's hope next year is the best year for every one.
"I just want to thank the NHS for helping my husband hopefully recover this. Fingers crossed x."
