Fighting respiratory failure

“My name is Amanda Johnson, I am now 30 years old, back in 2016-2017 I ended up in ICU for about 4-5 weeks when I was told by my local GP I had respiratory failure.

I was in and out of sleep for days. I ended up having to get a trachey and I stayed in it for a further 5-6 weeks. I was transferred between 3 hospitals ( started off in Wang then St V’s then back to Wang ) my nurse in ICU was Joan Logan. She took amazing care of me. She even looked after my family. We shared a special bond.
I really appreciate what everyone did for me in hospital. I wouldn’t be here if I ignored the advice. Thanks St V’s.”
