Mother-of-three discharged home for Mother’s Day



Hayley Trotman was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome after being in a coma for eight days

A mother-of-three who was left only able to move a couple of her fingers after being struck by a rare neurological condition has been discharged from a specialist rehab centre in time for Mother’s Day - even managing to walk independently through the front door of her home.

Hayley Trotman had been in an induced coma for eight days after being diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). She spent three months in intensive care, where she had stopped breathing twice and had to be mechanically ventilated with a tracheostomy.

The 44-year-old was left unable to move her body, save for a couple of fingers, and was in excruciating pain through GBS, a life-threatening condition that attacks the nerves which Hayley is believed to have contracted through a common cold.
