‘Caring angels’

Dear Editor:

Angels come in all sizes, shapes, and forms. Over the last few weeks, I have come across a whole multitude of them. I was quite ill, in Groves hospital from March 25 to April 4. I had very slight symptoms in the morning, but by noon, I knew I had a serious problem.

Thank you to my wonderful neighbour, Joyce Culp, for getting me to the ER so quickly and for the ride home and the wonderful Easter supper she made for us. Also, for everything else she has done for me.

Next, the ER staff were very caring and compassionate to my situation. They do a great job. Thank you.

Next, was the trip upstairs to a room. I can’t say enough about the nursing staff. They were absolutely amazing.  Despite the situation with COVID-19, they were always smiling, laughing and doing everything to make their patients as comfortable as possible.

Also, by the way, Groves food doesn’t live up to the terrible food stories. It was fantastic.

The many phone calls while in and since returning home has been great. They break up the day and cheer you up when you’re having a bad day.

My church family, friends and neighbours are next. They have brought meals and visited. Thanks, guys.

Thanks to Donna Jamieson. She finished up and delivered my Easter packages to my Saturday volunteer buddies at Arthur 2nd Look. I miss you guys. Also for everything else she did.

I would also like to thank Pastor Ed Charlton for his phone calls, words of encouragement and prayers.

Next time you’re in a hospital, be sure to give all frontline workers a high five.

If I missed anyone, I’m sorry, but I greatly appreciated everything.

Each and everyone mentioned above are all true “caring angels”. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

Janice Wilson,
