Many of you will know from your journeys on our train we have a very dear and sweet lady called Artmama who is currently in hospital after having one of her seizures. She was placed into an induced coma due to swelling of the brain. Artmama is now out of the coma and thankfully on the road to recovery. Doctors have informed the family that it will be a slow process that can take up to a year. Artmama has now been moved into a nursing facility which is of course very expensive.
