A word of thanks to the Gozo gen­eral Hos­pi­tal

Malta Independent - - LETTERS -

I imag­ined my round belly with the navel at its cen­tre un­der a harsh bright light as a float­ing orb.

Sur­round­ing me was the sur­geon and the nurses who came to me like a swarm of honey bees when I first en­tered the op­er­at­ing theatre - not to sting me, but to put a wire here and a pipe there.

The cool hands of the anaes­thetist and steady eyes of the sur­geon above the green mask re­as­sured me. Then, peace­ful sleep.

The next morn­ing they told me that it had been a mat­ter of life and death. I now was in CCU/ITU in the Gozo Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal.

I am re­ally im­pressed by your prompt re­sponse to the pa­tient’s needs, your pro­fes­sion­al­ism in car­ry­ing out the pro­ce­dures ex­actly with firm and clean hands, your char­ac­ter: hard when needed so I was prod­ded on to get bet­ter, dev­il­ish hu­mour, and per­fect team­work. Keep it up. You are so pro­fes­sional. Thank you all you guys of the Gozo Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal. You saved my life. God Bless You.
