Cobble Hill – On Monday, Jan. 13 the Mill Bay paramedics responded to a call to take my wife to Victoria General Hospital. The emergency doctor at 11:30 a.m. immediately ordered a cat scan and by 2 p.m. we finally found the reason for her declining health these many months, even years.
The neurosurgeon placed her for preference surgery and on Friday morning an enlarged tumour was removed from the brain area. From the time my wife entered the hospital to her discharge home we were treated with superb care. We want to express our profound thanks to all those who work in the medical field. As seniors we have been blessed with relatively good health over the years, and now, being thrust into the need for medical assistance, we have only praise: praise for the kindness and professionalism of the two paramedics, for those in the emergency room, for the wards, the actual surgery, the ICU/recovery, back to the ward and rehabilitation, and now presently the expertise of the nurses that call.
Indeed we have an excellent medical system that all should be proud of.
