The work you do leaves a lasting impression

values in action thank you

Dear Matron, 

Ten years ago I was a patient in your hospital after suffering a stroke.  I spent six months in your hospital care.  The physiotherapists did a marvellous job on me.  The nurses at that time were not nurses only angels,  I mean it.   One does not realise the dedication they give to their work.  I needed help going to the toilet and the nurse did the rest, you know what I mean.  Then they gave me a shower from head to toe, front and back and they never embarrassed me.  The physios got me to walk again.

I had a positive way of life, but with all the help and encouragement I got in the hospital I can drive a car and do some light work.   I hated the day I was discharged from the hospital.  I felt really at home with you people. I will be 85 in October.  I am a great grandfather.  Four generations of my family are alive and I will be married 60 years later this year.  

What I am trying to say is after 10 years I feel so grateful for three weeks in Nenagh General, followed by six weeks in the Hospital of the Assumption.  

I think of you and your staff every day.  I cannot say how grateful and appreciative I am to all who got me to this level.

Go raibh mile maith agaibh go léir.

Now that I have written this note I feel happier and all I can say is God bless you all.

Mr Daly, Nenagh, Co Tipperary
