Many thanks to the doctors who work in the emergency department at Royal Inland Hospital.

Upon arrival at RIH recently, I moved very swiftly through departments and was seen by Dr. Swarts and Dr. R. Wong, who made a decision about what I had and who admitted me to the fourth floor.

The nurses and students were always helping and at no time did I feel they were in a hurry.

I really want to thank the food and kitchen staff as I was put on a liquid food diet — non-dairy soups that were very tasty and hot and beverages and pudding at each meal that were served cold.

The servers realized I had limited use of my arms, so they helped me open each package.

All of us are so fortunate to live in a beautiful place where people care for others.

Thanks to those at RIH and to all my friends who belong to the best club, the Kamloops Duplicate Bridge Club.
