A true Christ­mas gift

The Standard (St. Catharines) - - Opinion -

Dur­ing the week prior to Christ­mas, this se­nior cit­i­zen was ad­mit­ted into the Greater Ni­a­gara Gen­eral Hospi­tal with pneu­mo­nia, fail­ing kid­neys and a blood dis­or­der — not good! My five-day re­cu­per­a­tion at the hospi­tal was quite an ad­ven­ture. Cat scans, X-rays, IVs, rou­tine blood anal­y­sis, tem­pered with a su­perla­tive amount of TLC. My med­i­cal treat­ment, by a large num­ber of highly ded­i­cated pro­fes­sion­als, was ab­so­lutely out­stand­ing.

To all our ded­i­cated health care pro­fes­sion­als, I am most grate­ful to you for your ex­em­plary con­duct, not just on my be­half, but also for all the ail­ing in­di­vid­u­als that were in emer­gency the week prior to Christ­mas. I also wish to ex­press my grat­i­tude to all of the sup­port staff in­di­vid­u­als who con­tinue to be com­mit­ted to main­tain­ing our su­perla­tive Cana­dian health care sys­tem.
