This morning, Anthea went to Frenchay to see whether the surgical halo that was fitted in the week after their accident could be removed.  They felt happy about taking it off and Anthea coped with the process admirably.  This is great news and Anthea is now wearing a stiff collar. 

It has been a long day as the appointment was followed by more long physio so Anthea is pretty tired and enjoying a cup of tea at home.  Her general progress continues and the removal of the halo is clearly another big step. Lella is now home from Brighton for Christmas.

Mike has done a couple of interviews and we believe BBC Points West will be broadcasting a piece tomorrow.
