There also was to be balloon animals, face-painting, and lots of crafts for the kiddies, along with free sandwiches and refreshments. Child and adult door prizes also were to be given away.

Nurses Week was held this past week across Canada. At Emo, nurses offered blood pressure and diabetes tests, plus served up strawberry shortcake to show their pleasure in having us come out to support the cause.
Nurses are a profession appreciated by us all. They deserve credit in many areas.

We are thinking of our patients of late, including Buzz McComb, who was released from Winnipeg and is back here at the hospital, and Raoul Cayer, who was still hospitalized as of press time.
Bill McCready was showing much improvement after the surgery he had, and was well enough to attend the nurses’ social. Meanwhile, Ann Wielinga continues to suffer from back pains.
And speaking to Stephanie Hawkins’ daughter, she said her mother was doing well and had four treatments left. We wish all the above the best of health in the future.
