What are the answers here?'" Gabby, who appears on Pointless on Friday, 17 May, further explained how their neurologist proved to be an amazing source of guidance, she said: "His neurologist was brilliant, he's a brilliant communicator and told us what the options were and I was like, (to Kenny) 'We've just to get a plan together, you need to know what you're doing and then we will keep being positive about it.'" Once they had adjusted to the initial shock, they treated the ordeal as a project: "That's what we did really, once we got over the initial shock, we just really kind of focused on it as a project we had to deal with and it's a b****y awful operation."
