Ap­pre­cia­tive of ef­forts dur­ing med­i­cal cri­sis

The Southwest Booster - - OPINION -

Editor:

In De­cem­ber 2018, Brit­tany Peter­son, a Con­tin­u­ing Care As­sis­tant from Home Care found me “un­re­spon­sive” at 9:30 a.m. Peter­son’s as­sess­ment led to quick and ac­cu­rate ac­tion and she called 911 and RN Me­lanie Suschuk.

You saved my life, as my blood sugar was .8. I know that night hy­po­gly­caemia (low blood sugar) while asleep and un­treated can be fa­tal.

Thank you for this ini­tial im­por­tant care. I re­call noth­ing from mid­night un­til ap­prox­i­mately 11 a.m.

Thank you to Home Care staff, fire­fight­ers, am­bu­lance, First Re­spon­ders, hos­pi­tal emer­gency RNS and physi­cians for my re­cov­ery.

Also I am grate­ful that my daugh­ter Barb in­sisted that I have daily Home Care last fall.
