Mary Clare Preston
Dear Community
Thank you everyone for your support, offers of support, prayers and wishes that have brought me through my recent medical difficulties. I am so grateful for our public health system, it's not perfect but through it, I was able to receive some of the best care that has enabled me to make a full recovery, and we did not have to mortgage the house to do it. Thank you to Anita, Andrew and Paul, Kirsty and Chloe for providing medical care, transporting me to Campbell River and making sure my family was notified and cared for. Mary L and family for taking care of Katie and organizing/helping all through the process. Michel and Breffni for holding my hand through scary procedures, advocating my needs, morning coffee and food. Thanks Heidi, Mike and Barb. Amy R., Dana S., Martha A and B, Andrew S., and Deena for recommending specialists. Thank you BC Ambulance Station 108 Campbell River for food and visits. Holly, Benne, Andrea, Tamara, Mary L., Amiti, Paola, Jason, Jenn and Sam for all the food that enabled me to skip the hospitals menus completely. In Victoria, thank you Saxifrage family and Thea, and the extended Preston clan. Especially thank you to Marcelle, Bill and Katie - I am so fortunate. ....Breathe
