Pete its Debbie Lowe, I don’t have the mason team contact numbers but would please let them know that Alan is seriously ill in John Radcliffe hospital with Covid 19 virus. His condition has worsened as he now has pneumonia and he has been moved to high dependency unit . We are optimistic this is a precautionary measure as he’s not in intensive care, Alan has his phone texts ok but not talking with oxygen mask. Thank you for your help Hope you and your family are well Debbie Lowe.
I wish Alan a speedy recovery and best wishes to his family. I will keep you all updated.
Sad news indeed but I’m wishing him a speedy recovery from this. After playing with Alan for the masons a few years ago I know he has plenty of fight in him and is more than capable of shutting this one up too. Come on Alan
Hi Everyone. I have received good news. Alan is now stable and breathing well. His heart, blood pressure & kidneys all fine. ITU are slowly weaning him off the tracheostomy by letting him breath through his nose and mouth for short periods. His voice box is on and he's trying to talk.Alan is responding to questions but a bit muddled due to being asleep for a long time. Physio team sat him up and is moving his arms and sitting up a bit longer unaided but not strong enough to stand up yet.
Well done Alan keep up the good work, we are all thinking of you and your family.
Makes it all the more obvious what a terrible time Alan and his family have been through, and for how long!
Lets pray the good news continues!

Hi Everyone I have received further good news. Couple of days ago Alan stood on his feet for 60 seconds, the following day he walked out of the ward and along the corridor. Alan managed to eat fish chips and peas and is now allowed to eat normal food.
