I am recovering from Covid.
I spent 10 weeks in hospital, was on a Ventilator and had a Tracheostomy. During this time, it was very traumatic for my family, and they tried everything to try and get a response or reaction from me through nurse-aided video calls. My son, through Twitter, got a short video message from Barry Horne which is one of the only things I can remember from my 5 weeks in ICU.
After I eventually came home, I was unaware when I answered the phone it was Graeme Stuart, acting as an Everton Ambassador, and I enjoyed speaking with him about his important contributions to Everton's survival.
But I must save my special thanks to our one and only "Great Nev". Again through Twitter, he phoned me and chatted for 30 minutes. He offered encouraging words and disclosed he was positive about the Blues future. He took time out of his day to speak to me even though it was actually his daughter's birthday.
I thank all 3 and it illustrates that we are all in the "Blue Family".

His family and all his friends were very worried about him and it was such a relief when we heard he was on the road to recovery. I know that hearing from Everton legends was a massive boost to him.
Everton have made a big difference to the community and gestures like the ones for Tony make me proud to be an Evertonian.
See you soon for a pint, mate.

Despite all of the crap we are a great club to belong to and I love it.
