Last Saturday, whilst trying to help a terrified youngster escape a gang of yobs trying to get at him, both Edward and I were stabbed outside our house.
The youth had banged on our door trying to escape a gang who were intent on coming into our house to stab him. I tried to intervene and was attacked by two of the group. Edward came to my aid and received a single stab wound to the back which punctured his lung. I had four stab wounds but managed to fend off the attackers.
Edward had two visits to theatre and was in ITU for 2 days. He is now back home, very sore and tired but glad to be alive. We are both receiving ongoing treatment for our injuries.
Two men have been arrested and charged with attempted murder of both Ed and I.
12 months ago this week we lost Jane. I nearly lost Edward on Saturday. May is becoming a bad month...
