Special thanks

I am still recovering from a combined attack of pneumonia and influenza, which sent me to the hospital for six days, but wanted to thank everyone who helped me in some way. I will not mention names, as I know it would embarrass my friends and neighbors, but they will know who they are.

The one who took me to MultiCare emergency room on Christmas night and waited for over three hours. The one that took me back to ER two nights later and stayed until she found out I needed to be hospitalized. The wonderful nurse who made me as comfortable as possible that night because I had to sleep on a gurney – no hospital beds were available anywhere.

The medics who transported me the next morning to Tacoma General Hospital were so thoughtful and kind. My fantastic friends and neighbors who took care of my house, mail and laundry while I was in the hospital, who brought me personal items I needed, who sent flowers, and who visited me.

And when I got home, again my “special” people did so much – picked up prescriptions, shopped for groceries, brought my mail in, brought cords for my Kindle as I had forgotten mine in the hospital, made me homemade soup and took out my garbage and recycle bins. I have tried to remember every nice thing that was done for me, and if I missed anything, I apologize.

And last, but certainly not least, the firefighters and EMTs who responded so quickly to my 911 call the day after I got home from the hospital, and was running out of oxygen. What a great group of guys they were. I am so lucky that I have you all around me. Thank you again.
