Dave 21 and a thanks to the NHS staff

edited July 2018 in Not Sports Related
My 28 year old son, Dave, was rushed to hospital yesterday, where neurosurgeons performed a life saving operation on him. Fingers crossed, and everything else, hopefully he is going to be ok. There has been some improvement we have seen already, so hopefully, this will continue steadily, and we are staying positive.
But I wanted to use this thread to pay tribute to the staff at both hospitals we attended. They were amazing. Compassionate, professional, skilled, and ultimately life savers. They rescued someone very precious to me, and they did it with so much care. It was truly humbling and inspiring watching them and being looked after by them. I owe them so much.
But I am just one of a number, these people do this on a daily basis. My eldest daughter is a nurse, and she regularly tells of the abuse, both physical and verbal, they receive far too often, whilst performing their duties to help and save people. Yes, people can get stressed at times when family members are ill, but really that’s no excuse, and it is not always about that, anyway.
Our doctors and nurses regularly show us the very best side of humanity.
So just a plea, and most people do this anyway - show them the same back in return, by treating them with respect and appreciation, while they help you.
Sermon over.
Get better soon Dave, love you loads, mate.
