It's been a long time since I have posted here but a number of folk have been saying they miss me. Can't think why. One of the reasons I have logged in is to say thank you to everyone for your kind thoughts, prayers and concern for me (and Kiwi) following my recent event with a person who thought they could steal money from me. I am doing fairly well now and feel I am just about back to normal. (I think that's a good thing!!!!!)
Something I have learned from this has been how wide is the impact of such an incident. Sure it affects me, it certainly affected Kiwi, but the impact on my children, grand children, staff at the hospital and even the community has been significant. Because of that it takes a lot longer to put it behind me as many very caring people still ask how I'm doing.
If I was to identify one thing from this it is my hope that from what I have experienced and seen Kiwi go through I will offer better support to families of patients who have a loved one in our Emergency Department being treated following injuries due to trauma or even Cardiac and stroke patients. The look on Kiwi's face when she arrived in ED the day I was attacked told me just how hard it was for her to have received the phone call. I think that was something I hadn't really taken into account until that moment.
Anyway... it's time to live on and enjoy the music.
