Johnny was taken critically ill with H1N1 Swine Flu in 2014 , which quickly developed into Bi-lateral Pneumonia, Bocavirus, multiple organ failure resulting in being intubated and put into an induced coma, being ventilated, a Tracheostomy, kidney dialysis, ECMO treatment, multiple blood transfusions, Ecoli, VRE, two cardiac arrests and a stroke. on two occasions his wife and children are brought in to be told it was the end. It seems nobody told Johnny though! He spent 7 months in three intensive care units and four hospitals. He pulled through and at Leamington Rehab Hospital had to learn to sit, stand, walk, talk and eat all over again. Needless to say Johnny has a soft spot for the NHS. Life is great!
