LONDON -- British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has posted a video on Twitter in which he hails the staff in the National Health Service for saving his life when it could have "gone either way."
  
Johnson was dressed in a suit and looked and sounded assured in the video made after his discharge from St. Thomas' Hospital in London. He said he did not have the words to properly thank the staff at NHS for"saving my life."
  
He listed a number of the frontline staff who cared for him over a week at St. Thomas' Hospital in London but singled out two nurses who stood by his bedside for 48 hours "when things could have gone either way."
  
He said Jenny from New Zealand and Luis from Portugal were the reason "in the end my body did start to get enough oxygen."
  
Johnson said there are "hundreds of thousands of NHS staff who are acting with the same care and thought and precision as Jenny and Luis."
  
Johnson spent a week at St. Thomas', three days of which were in intensive care. He was given oxygen but was not put on a ventilator.
