DEBORAH James bravely shared a photo of herself recovering in a hospital bed after nearly dying.

The 40-year-old Sun columnist said she was on the verge of death after a “traumatic” medical emergency that landed her in intensive care.

“Apologies for being quiet,” the mother-of-two, who has been battling stage 4 bowel cancer since 2016, wrote on Instagram.

“A week ago at this time in the evening, I was on the verge of death due to a medical emergency.”

“I’m not ready to talk about what happened yet because the trauma has been too much to bear – but it’s all thanks to an incredible team of NHS specialists who worked all night and the next day to save me.”

I am indebted to you in the greatest way possible.

“I’m still in danger, and I still have a lot of procedures to go through.”

“Thank you for your thoughtful messages; they mean a lot to me,” she added.

I’m sure you understand that, while I may read them, I’m not in a position to respond right now.

Thank you for your virtual love and support, as always.

It makes a significant difference.”

Deborah revealed in December that she was entering an “uncertain phase” with her stage 4 bowel cancer after a “scary six months.”
