I'm finally ready to share this and thank some incredible people. Last Tuesday, en route to our music video shoot at 8.15am, my husband, Jo, was unwittingly involved in a three vehicle collision on the A30. (Apologies to those held up by the road closure. The crash was not caused by Jo.) He ...was taken by ambulance to hospital and I'm relieved to say that he will recover fully. No-one else was injured.
I was 5 minutes behind him in my friend Kathy's car and on the scene very quickly. He was looked after by some amazing people and l would like to pass on my thanks not only to our wonderful friends who stepped up to deal with the logistics of a cancelled shoot, a written off car and a distraught me; but also to the fantastic paramedics, first aiders, fire service and police officers who attended the scene and ensured that the man l love was taken care of. Not forgetting the incredible NHS staff in A&E who were very kind, and thorough in their assessment of his injuries.
Some key people in particular:
Adam Blinman (paramedic)
Andy French (paramedic)
PC Brown (police)
Kelly Butler (first aider)
There were so many more incredible humans that day and l wish l knew all their names. Should any of you see this - l could never thank you enough. And if anyone who reads this knows anyone who attended the scene, please tag them so that they can see this.
Finally, I would like to pass on my thanks to the fabulous staff at the brand new 'Les Amis' in the Quedam, near the hospital in Yeovil. Their unobtrusive yet attentive service and kindness as l fell apart on my best friend Kathy over coffee and a stiff brandy was truly appreciated. I highly recommend a visit.
Thank you all, so much. I have no idea if any of you will see this, but the man you helped is everything to me and I will be grateful to you for ever. ❤
