While working at a hospital at the front, an explosion caused a building collapse that gave her a serious concussion and left her with ongoing migraines. She returned to Trellech hoping to find nursing work that needed her particular skills, and instead found herself baffled by some of the decisions aroun Roland Gospatrick's care.
