On the same day, Nicky was transferred to the Walton Neurological Center, where she was put into a medically induced coma when doctors told her family it was “touch it and go” to see if she could make it.

She is still in a coma after treatment, but her condition is currently stable.

Sophie described her colleague: “She came to us 18 months ago and she is just brilliant. Nicky is the liveliest and most colorful lady, she smiles with a wink.

“She loves Christmas and to know that she may be in the hospital at this time of year and the pandemic is still going on is heartbreaking.”
