Speaking of having Derek home, Kate said: “As we pulled up, I could see two little faces, Darcey and Billy looking out the window, and I could literally see them go, ‘He’s here’.
“And they sort of ran out and ran forward, opened the door, and he immediately burst into tears,” she continued.
Kate added: “There was a lot of hugging and we got him inside. He absolutely knew he was home, he is responding all the time – what he’s not able to do is to talk.
“We do need a lot of help. And it’s not just help with looking after him, because it is 24-hour care, and I haven’t really slept as you can probably tell.
“I will ease off, I’m just very aware at the moment and it’s a whole new team. So he’s probably got a little bit used to the people in hospital and so it’s a new team now that are working with him and helping him to come through.”
