Beyond the High Blue Air: a mother's story of caring for her injured son

At the age of 29, Lu Spinney's son Miles suffered a devastating head injury, while snowboarding in Austria.

While doctors saved his life, he was left severely brain damaged, in a minimally conscious state, and in pain.  

Lu, from Greenwich, has now published a memoir of the years which followed the accident, up to Miles' death, five years later in 2011.
