I want to put it on record that the staff on the HDU at the Royal Oldham Hospital are fabulous.
When I visited in the evening, they'd finally moved Ailz downstairs onto a general ward- and into a more relaxed atmosphere.
She's tired and beat up, but she feels like she's been given a new start. She's keen to get out and discover what the rest of her life is going to be about.
This morning it's snowing.
