“The accident happened near Kimberley. We’ve been moving between Johannesburg and Kimberley, taking care of her but also dealing with side shows that come with this sort of things. So it’s been tough, it’s been really, really tough. With these sort of things were progress is painstakingly slow it can be heavy. We go there everyday we visit three times a day, every visiting hour. It takes days for any progress to happen. Today, the Dr called us and said she moved her left hand. Small wins like that really make a huge difference.”
