"Well that was a week I never want to live again," Ronan said at the time. "To have my Storm in hospital under the most extreme circumstances and not be able to see her and hold her hand and give her a hug and tell her everything was going to be ok was the toughest I have known. I felt so helpless, her strength is insane.

"The care she received and the expertise was incredible, thank you to Dr Aftab and all the team you got her home today. She is on the mend and I am so grateful. What a day to come home thank God she made it."
