Mark,thankyou,am touched by your post,yes,I feel reassured when I'm at the hospital,knowing he couldn't be anywhere better,it's the battle inside when I leave the facility,dreading the phone ringing at home,guess you know how it is.
I realise we only really appreciate someone,when we could lose someone so dear,and only then do we realise how wonderful and caring our nursing staff truly are,Angels every one.

Win, you sound an amazing person. Your brother is very lucky to have you. The RHH is a wonderful place, our daughter was in there 15yrs ago. We have huge gratitude to them for the care she was given. I'm sure your brother will be receiving the same care. The comments posted on here blow out of the water the comments a nasty person posted on another matter, WOMBWELL was full of
druggies and piikies etc. how wrong they were! Take care and keep your spirits up love.

Reply Posted by Win Thompson on Friday September 16 2016 at 21:50
Oh how kind,thankyou Doris,I sincerely hope your daughter recovered,truly the RHH is the best possible place for trauma,the staff are very good,they answer each and every difficult question,and put one at ease when we are at our most vulnerable.Frank is in the best place.
Wombwell is a place where once upon a time,each of us felt safe to walk around,but like every other place we need to be aware,yet the true spirit of Wombwell still exists,where people are kind,helpful,and friendly,I hate the word pikey as do the Romany travellers who have lived here for generations,have indeed married local girls and are part of the rich tapestry of Wombwell life.
As for the druggies, yes true I'm afraid,yet they are in most towns and cities
not just Wombwell,if you have never been here,you would be pleasantly surprised,there are nice shops and a small st market,it's the people who make Wombwell what it is friendly,full of characters,people who go the extra mile to help,
Shops where your served with a smile,and feel the warmth of genuine concern when something's wrong,yeah Wombwells ok,were good.
I've known and felt that this week especially given what's happened,their genuine concern for my brother as been very touching,has as your kind message,it gladdens the heart and lifts the spirit,thankyou,and God bless.

Hello Win we are both pleased to read that Frank is on Recovery.What a sad day that was on your twin brothers birthday as well yours.
There is some amazing people in world and you Win are one of them help anybody now it is time for you to need help as you know we live so far away.
This is a time that Family rally around neighbours that can help just to take a little strain off to allow you to charge the batteries as they say and get some rest

Hi Win just wondering how your brother is doing on his road to recovering.I don't know you personally but you sound a very nice caring loving sister.

If you need any help or if they is anything I can do to help you or your brother on his road to recovery then just ask.im not from Wombwell originally but having lived here over 25 years I'm proud to be part of the Wombwell community.

Oh,how lovely you sound too,I'm deeply touched,thankyou,
Two days ago,his sedation was reduced so he could come around naturally,today when I went,he was trying to focus his eyes,I spoke his name and told him I was
There and reassured him,his eyes tried to focus,then his hands reached for the tubes in his mouth,so I'm certain he heard me,and his reaction was as described,
His BP,went up,as did his heart rate,everything,so put him some mittens on,then they re sedated him,and he's gone back to sleep,I feel reassured that he heard me,
And that brings me great comfort,it really does,though he isn't out of the woods,he can see the trees,
Tomorrow,I'll go back again,that's all I can do and fervently pray,the staff here are something else,not just consummate professionals,it's a gift they have,they exude calmness and a sense of tranquility among all the awesome medical equipment.
Thankyou for your kindness,and your offer of help,just your words and thoughts are
Enough to bring great comfort at this sad time,whoever you are,know that yourself and all the people who have posted comments have brought a good feeling to us knowing that there are kind and genuine people out there it restores ones faith in human nature.where ever your from matters not,Wombwells a better place with you in it.

I want to thankyou all,each and everyone of you for the kindness and concern you
Have shown in regard to my brother Frank.
He is showing progress slowly,at the Hallamshire hospital,due to the dedicated care and attention given by the dedicated staff there.
Tomorrow he will be receiving the same dedicated care in the I c u unit at our own BDGH,this will be a long slow progress,he is alive only due to the early intervention of Tracy Smith finding him,also Lisa Shutt,who both live on Jardine street,Wombwell,where he was found.
The kindness of these two good Samaritans saved my brothers life,staying with him and offering him the support he needed until the emergency services arrived.
They could have ignored him,but they chose not to,therefore saving his life in the first instance,thankyou from myself and my sister Olive.
It's been a traumatic time these past days,as Frank sustained fractures to his head
And as been in and out of induced coma for more than a week.
Due to the excellent medical care at the Hallamshire he hopefully is on the mend,
The positive messages recieved from many people many of you who we do not know as been overwhelming,and we thank each and everyone of you,but I think this is Barnsley/Wombwell/yorkshire folk,It is inerrant to us,our hearts and generosity of spirit go out to people in need I'm not being condescending it's a fact.
I'm proud of who I am and belonging to this unique band of people who are Yorkshire born n bred,we have that unique capacity of being there for everybody.
simply the best!

Hi,just an update,
Frank was transferred to I c u Barnsley yesterday,his progress is slow,
But he is aware that his family are there beside him,by the nodding of his
Head at certain questions,which brings reassurance,different hospital,but the same dedicated care,once more thankyou for the kindness and support given by people
Who we may never meet,who are genuine in their concern and thanks to the friends and neighbours who we do know,the generosity of spirit is good indeed.
Franks recovery will be a long and slow journey,but we will overcome these I'm certain.Thankyou all again,your positive comments give us strength,God bless xxx

a ward,it's going to be a long haul,back to everyday life,but lm certain
he will get there,being fit,strong and determined.
Linda I don't do facebook,I feel it's too invasive,I don't mind writing a letter
Or e mail,I did send you an e mail in the first instance,don't know wether or
not you recieved it,the last 5 weeks have all mingled into one,hospital and taking
the dogs out,that's it,everything else is gone for now.
