Us In Parksville bc


It was sometimes rainy, we had a pouring rain, a cloudy sky with a shy sun shining, but none of that stop us from having a great time at the Pacific Resort Beach in Parksville!

Sunny days !


My son, Michael wrote a song that says: ”when the sun is shining and the birds are singing, then I know, I am living in a world that alive… made by someone powerful, God…”

Today, I felt that blessing when I looked outside. While some of you, dear friends are enjoying or suffering or hating or tired of the snow, the cold, the storm (I can relate to that and deeply sympathize) the sun was shining on Vancouver Island! I hope those pictures will warm up your heart and tell you that, there is always sun shining days after the storm! 😉

Kidnapped by Aliens!


Dear Diary

“I think, last week, I was kidnapped by aliens. ”

OK, my friends, that’s certainly what I would write in my diary to explain my unusual experience from Friday to Monday.

I had again a serious health problem on the night of Friday. My husband played “again” the ambulance to take me to the emergency at Victoria General Hospital. The diagnosis was: a surgery!

 

 

You should know that among my history of visited hospitals (Belgium, Africa, Edmonton) this was such a special experience that I thought I was in an alien hospital. Judge for yourself:

  • I was immediately admitted as soon as they understood my problem (in previous experience: I will still be waiting for 4-5 hours in pain …)
  • Nurses took turn to make sure I did not need anything (in previous experience: only one will showed up and disappeared for at least 2 hours …)
  • The doctor doing the surgery visited me 3 times to explain either the surgery process or to check on me, (previous experience: I will see the doctor only once, often with no clear explanation or nothing at all and you leave the hospital without ever remembering his face…)
  • There were more serious cases than me, but we had all their attention (previous experience: if you’re not a priority, you’re left behind in pain …)
  • Medical staff calls you “darling, sweaty, honey, my dear, beauty …”, very attentive and full of humanity. Do you think this is an exaggeration? (Let me tell you that elsewhere, my color was often an obstacle to treat me well …)

I spent 4 days in Victoria General Hospital (VGH) with the feeling of being in a 7-star hotel or with aliens or in heaven … No, I haven’t been kidnapped by Aliens, I was on the earth with real dedicated, conscientious, special Humans… and I am very grateful to God for the medical staff of VGH, YOU ROCKED!!

By the way, today I feel much better, thanks God! 🙂
