They were worried I wasn't eating.
But I didn't like the hospital food and I was worried it was not halal.
The only things I'd eat there were the nutritional milkshakes.
Nurse Julie discovered I liked Cheesy Wotsits so brought me those.
'What do you like?' they asked me.
'Fried chicken,' I replied.
Yma discovered there was a halal Kentucky Fried Chicken at Small Heath so would go there every afternoon to buy me chicken and chips.
One day she even cooked me a curry.
To keep me occupied they brought me a DVD player.
One of the first movies they got me was Bend it Like Beckham,
thinking the story of a Sikh girl challenging her cultural norms and playing football would appeal to me.
I was shocked when the girls took off their shirts to practise in sports bras and I made the nurses switch it off.
After that they brought cartoons and Disney movies.
I watched all three Shrek movies and A Shark's Tale.
My left eye was still blurry so I covered it when I watched, and my left ear would bleed so I had to keep putting in cotton-wool balls.
