‘Our Ambos got him picked up and tucked away safely in hospital in record time. I followed them in.

‘The fantastical medical staff are in overdrive taking care of his sore head,’ she added.

‘He’s awake and not too happy that he doesn’t have his pants – nobody loves a hospital gown. Hearing his voice is lovely, but can’t wait for hugs when it’s safe.
