16th August 2018
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
