Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Recently I've had a family member in hospital and rehab. It's become very clear to me that the nurses are not just nurses. They encourage the patient with caring and kind words, they calm the family and help us find what info we need. They put in so much extra love and care into their work. And they feel more like they are an advocate for the patient and family even though they work in a system that gives them bare minimum as far as resources.
I can't believe that in 2018 Windsor hospitals are still using paper charts. We went from emerge to surgery to a room to rehab and we had to repeatedly ask the same questions and catch them all up on what's going on. A paper chart with 100 pages in it is NOT ACCEPTABLE. WHY DO WE NOT HAVE DIGITAL COMMUNICATION IN HOSPITALS TO SET OUR NURSES UP FOR SUCCESS?
I sincerely hope this is part of the plans. How do we expect doctors and nurses not to make any mistakes if they have to flip through a paper chart for each patient. I'm disgusted. Give these Angels some help!
To the POS that hit our dog June 18th on South Talbot in Maidstone at 4:30 this afternoon. My husband watched you as you drove away. You took our much loved family member from us ,we had to let her go you hurt her so badly.
So to the person who was driving the later model tan escape I hope you sleep well and watch out because karma will get YOU!!
Today I was involved in an accident on Walker Road. I was side swiped / rear-ended by another vehicle with my kids in the car. I was obviously shaken and angry at the time.
A man saw the accident, pulled over, took pics and made sure I was ok. He stayed to give a statement, and kept checking on us.
Never having dealt with this situation before, I was pretty flustered. The officer helping me through it was amazing. He talked about his spoiled cat after finding out that I work in a pet supply store.. just doing what he could to keep me calm.
Unfortunately, I didn't get either man's name.. but I do want to recognize the fact that today was made just a little easier due to both of them.
I would like you both to know how much your kind gestures meant to me today.
On Saturday June 16 2018 at 830pm my family went fishing under the ambassador bridge I noticed a baby goose was stuck in a fenced in cement pole in the river he couldn't climb or go under the fence too deep in the water. The auxiliary police told me he has been in there several hours and the humane society was unable to come till next day I started to panic I watched this little guy try so hard to remove himself. I told my daughter we have to get him out so my son and daughter went in the water bent the fence upwards to swim under they went to the other fence with my daughter inside the trapped area and my son on the other the baby was looking at them knowing they were gonna save him my daughter struggled to get him out but he was also scared, I kept telling her to hold onto the fence for some safety for herself my son was holding the other fence up which they ripped out from under the water.My daughter used a big piece of plastic as they lured it to the opening he fussed but they got him out people were clapping and saying thank you to my beautiful children, mind you they both stink like dirty nasty water but it was so worth it. I just want to say thank you to my children Robert Renaud and Shyanne Browning for being brave enough to go in the river also love you both very proud mother
To the young man (and his kind parents) in Tecumseh at Green Acres Park who found and returned my son's Ipod. Pretty sure you play for LaSalle (black uniform with Antonios logo). We will be looking for you next time we play against you, we have a special lil something for your honestly and just being a good human!
He was so bummed thinking he lost it, and I literally just finished a conversation with him about how some people are honest and do the right thing and how he might get lucky enough to get it back, then boom! You guys called my husband saying where you were with it! You showed my 6 year old there are good, honest, kind people out there! Cant thank you all enough not only for returning it but for being a good soul!
See you at the field soon!
Yesterday was our monthly Pok mon GO community day. Over 200 of us gathered at Willistead Park to catch hundreds of larvatar, hoping for the illusive shiny. Friends were made, funds were raised for Habitat for Humanity Windsor-Essex (thank you for the surprise refreshment booth!!), and a beautiful couple started their life journey together in marriage. As the bride was walked down the aisle, we all moved to the other side of the park to keep their day special, and remarked sadly at the rain that started shortly after. Congrats to the new couple, and may the rain bless your life together!
To the guy at the walmart on Dougal, shame on you. I was shopping with my mother, son and husband minding our own business when you whipped out your phone and started to make a video pointing it at me then shouted "WALLMARTTTTT" like what they do with those "people of walmart" memes. As soon as I looked at you and gave you a confused look you ran away like the coward you are. I asked my mother if there was anything on me (i was wearing a black shirt and black tights, oh and mind you im 8 months pregnant) and she said no. I got so emotional my 3 year old son watched me run to the bathroom so I could cry.
So yeah, thank you for ruining our shopping trip with your lame attempt at comedy. Im pregnant, theres nothing funny about that. And for you to think being cruel to another human being is amusing then I hope that karma comes for you. No one deserves to feel the way you made me feel.
So I was just wanted to say thank you to the girl in a black cruze on Tuesday june the 12th on tourangeau, who got the lady in the tan Lincoln to come back after she hit my mirror and drove away !
Ps I got a quote for a new mirror and the lady who hit me gave me a cheque for a new one!
So I'm very thankful, the girl got her and got her to come back 😁
