Sad, Lonely & A Long Way From Home

Extract From Chapter 5

Moving On

Jane ran to tell Paulo and they called an ambulance. Jane said later that I was going grey and they knew I needed help badly. I ended up in hospital for a week with tubes and drips attached to me all over the place.
The nurse sat beside me and explained that I had pleurisy and pneumonia and I was very lucky they found me when they did or I might not be here today.

I guess I had a lot to thank Jane for, but unfortunately she had moved back home by the time I was out of hospital. It turned out that she had fallen pregnant by that married man and he wanted nothing more to do with her.
