Well done Adam and to all our wonderful health care workers. This is truely amazing. So nice to read such a great story. Wishing you and your family well, Adam.

Great news Adam and such a relief, I'm sure for your family. Stay well and take care 🙏🧸

Such a great story and great medical care for a great family! Well done Freeman’s! Glad to see you finally home Adam!

Congratulations to Adam, his family, and the awesome team who helped him survive.

I am absolutely amazed at your recovery.. what a fantastic effort from all concerned. Stay well, treasure those close to you. What incredible health care workers and system we are blessed with in this country... i wish you a long and healthy life Adam.

I’ve looked after Adam many times in 6c & RDU. Always great to see long term patients go home. Best wishes to you Adam & your family. Take care.

So wonderful to see Adam at home with his family where he belongs 🥰💪💕 What incredible medical staff to help get him there

Amazing news!! Good luck Adam and enjoy some family time 😊

Good luck Alex it was a pleasure meeting and moving you around the hospital. Stay well

Amazing results! Congratulations on beating the odds. Adam is just one of the reasons we all need to follow recommendations for Covid. He has been through so much and should live a long and normal life, but still has immune deficiency.

Metro North Hospital and Health Service "Medical teams"? C'mon, the 'teams' (plural) who helped in this man's recovery are a bit broader than just medical (with no disrespect to the medicos... fabulous job). Shout out to the wardies, food services staff, and plenty more. Thanks for YOUR team effort too! Exciting day for you Adam... good luck with the rest of your recovery! 😊

Adam you are definitely an inspiration and we are so happy that you are home. The street wasn’t the same without you.

A good news story in a time of so much sadness ❤️

Good morning. I wish you good health and happiness.

All the best Alex and family 💖🏠👪💖

Amazing! Best wishes to you and family

Kirsty McGregor what an amazing end to a long hospital stay x so glad Adam is home now with his family

The healthy options are super expensive

Melanie Bowring blast from the past!

The yoghurt is Delish Dawn!

I did my prac there recently and that mix of yoghurt compote and fruit with muesli was fantastic

Anything would be an improvement on what was there..

Bring back sugar!!!!!!

Yummo!

And yet you are still in 2020 promoting meat, eggs and dairy. Tell Dr Michael Greger and Dr Neal Barnard how silly you are.
