I am now very aware that every step we take is precious. I am fortunate to be at Barts where steps matter and every morning I am receiving amazing physio treatment from a team, who like everyone here, are helping me. As a result I will recover my steps and my guitar playing – lost for the moment. My eldest son has spent his whole life struggling with his steps and my present predicament has heightened my awareness of his strength and inner will to overcome his life obstacles. These have included his PLP victory against this criminal government. I have to recover fully because Anne and I live on a top floor flat which, when reached, is itself on three levels. So when you leave home today enjoy every step you take.
