Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Leamington
During my grandpa's final hours (Bill Abbott) on Saturday Sept 28 I wanted to give a shout out to the emergency team at Erie Shores Health Care Leamington for their caring and compassionate service. They deserve the recognition, thank you. A bigger shout out to the nurse who took care of him during the day, I believe her shift started at 7 am. I didn't quite get her name. But I do know that the compassion and care that she gave needs to be recognized, not only for him but for us. She offered us warm blankets etc not only checked in on him but us as well to see if we needed anything. Whenever I thought he needed something because he was uncomfortable she was there right away to assist. She made the circumstances more comfortable for us. A sincere thank you to her, a profession like that isn't easy, you did an amazing job.
Spotted on Seacliffe drive near Kingsville are all the drivers who refused to pullover for a volunteer firefighter today, September 10th at 2:25pm, while clearly on their way to an emergency. Please pull over for flashing green lights!
Today I was in Dr. F's waiting room on the 3rd floor. I was really nervous that I would need to have a procedure done today. I started to get a little teary eyed thinking about it and this wonderful lady told me that it would be okay. She even came over and consoled me after the tears would not stop. I just want to say thank you for your kindness and assuring me that I would be just fine. It was just like my Grandma who has passed on was there with me. I'm sorry I didn't catch your name but if you read this you'll never know how special that was for me to feel like I had a grandmother's love after not being able to hug my own for 10 years. You are a such a wonderful person thanks for being my honorary Grandma for the day you helped me more than you'll ever know!
I'd like to thank the two gentlemen who stopped to thank my daughter today. She was driving through a construction zone and had to go on the shoulder for part of it. She hit a soft spot and her front end slipped down a small slope. The first gentleman immediately pulled over to see that she was okay and was going to stay with her until I got there. As I was on my way she called back to let me know another gentleman had stopped with a pickup truck and a strap and pulled her car back up to the road. I wish she had got their names so I can thank them personally so I hope they see this.
Started with a phone call to 911 all because wifey thought she could do it on her own NOT. First responder were awesome to my wife who was having chest pain and shortness of breath, they not only treated her with the greatest respect, as my wife tells me later they not only took the time with her, but they also were very gentle trying to get an IV into her arm and they just couldn't find a vain even though the driver pulled over twice.
Now unto the ER room the nurses and Dr took the time to ask her all the questions while they waited for me and a friend Sara to get there. They were awesome all of them. Then unto her room they take her to 2nd floor and got her all settled for the night. Through all this because they took the time with her and asked all kind of guestions making her feel she was the most important patient my deepest gratitude to all the nurses at Leamington Hospital. You may be a small hospital but to us you are one of the best in the county for us old folks. So we want to say thank you all for your kindness and patience you have shown us, but to any of us who have to go to your ER for any reason. Blessing to all of you, may God continue in all your lives and watch over you all
First day back to school and the cars are not stopping again! This happens every day on Erie St S. Last year was the same. What do we have to do to get this noticed by the police?
We have reported several times
A tremendous thank-you to the physcians, nurses, and staff for saving my life and making recovery possible.
I would like to bring attention to dog owners & pet caretakers, that if you know your dog has been aggressive with other dogs then they shouldn't be taken to the dog park and especially released off their leash! This is total irresponsibility. My daughter took her 8 mth old dog to the park and the pup was attacked viciously. The woman was watching this aggressive dog for her son. I would like to Thank her for quickly running away without giving her name or contact number. We don't need you to pay the Vet bill, we just hope you sleep well tonight.
