Following his update about his daughter’s injury, Dan wrote: "Twitter is odd sometimes. Some people are angry about the mention of shift length. I'm not 'amazed' she's doing 13 hours - my sister is a nurse and does it all the time. I used to do whooping great shifts 6 days a week. Nothing wrong with working hard."
