Mr Thomas’ condition is far more serious than either of them had imagined though. Frankie also attempts to help a young mum who has an eight-year-old daughter called Ruby and is heavily pregnant. Heather has high blood pressure and is concerned that she’ll go into labour before her husband returns from Afghanistan. As Ian plans his surprise, Frankie decides to stick with Heather, unaware of the impact this decision will have on her life.
