Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Spotted : Over the weekend, my mother who is suffering from colon cancer spread to the bones had a bad reaction to her first dose of chemotherapy. Her at home nurse recommended we call an ambulance and take her to the ER. What a mistake that was! The paramedics were fantastic; personable, caring, and helpful. Unfortunately, the same could not be said about the nurses on call that evening. After waiting in the ER for 5+ hours without any pain meds because she was unable to ingest them (bone cancer is known to be one of the most, if not the most, painful cancers), the way she was treated by the attending staff disgusted me. She was told that she should "accept the consequences of chemo or give up" and that the hospital was crowded enough without her there. The fact that anyone had the audacity to say this to a suffering patient is truly despicable. Once we relayed this information to her nurse from Saint Elizabeth, she was as horrified as we were and shocked they did not admit her to the hospital overnight. We will of course be lodging a formal complaint against these individuals, but I thought that this would be an appropriate method to show the lack of sympathy shown to my mother. The other patients there that evening shared this sentiment and I believe they too are owed some sort of reconciliation of the situation.
Any Met ER nurses reading this: I sincerely hope this opens your eyes to the way patients deserve to be treated.
Spotted : Thank you to reliance home comfort at 11pm on dec 23 to adjust the furnace wiring so we can have heat. You stayed positive and had conversations with us to make sure things worked. Merry Christmas from our WARM house to yours.
Spotted : I received this random act of kindness from an anonymous woman who was familiar with my families' struggles and she had received a message to help - it was sent with the message "I had a dream about you and had to do this". She doesn't know me personally and said it was a gift from a higher power.

To the person or persons who dumped their old black leather couch in the alley behind my house near Walker Road and Niagara on Monday December 23: If you read this, do the decent thing and pick that couch back up and bring it to the dump yourself. I also want you to know that I hurt my back trying to get it out of the alley - I was afraid that it might cause an accident if someone ran into it with their vehicle. Shame on you for leaving a heavy piece of furniture like that for someone else to have to worry about. We should ALL be responsible for PROPER removal of our OWN furniture when it becomes unwanted and we should NOT dump couches on someone else's property or on city property abutting someone else's property. You might have thought it was harmless, but I called the city and they will not remove it. Therefore PLEASE do the right thing and come back and remove it YOURSELF!!!
Just a shout out to Spotted in Windsor!
Spotted : I won the bedding on this site from BeddingSuperstore.com. I received it all today, and was shocked how much I had won! 10 pillows, bedding, bed skirt, mattress cover, curtains to match! What a wonderful Christmas present! Also such good quality!
Merry Christmas, keep liking and sharing! Thanks again!
Spotted : To the Sobey's proprietor in Amherstburg, stop being a pompous ass to your employees. Customers notice. Get the "pineapple " yourself you ass.
This ad was posted on Kijiji Windsor yesterday. Title simply says "Stray Dog" and then it reads only "Last seen on Drouillard and Whelpton" with pic shown. I have already send and email to Humane Society with a link to the ad. Hopefully they will be able to contact the person who posted the ad, find out if he is still around and go out and recover this animal before he gets injured. In the meantime, if anyone in that area sees this animal, could you please help him rather than just let him wander the streets. The phone number for the WECHS is 519-966-5751 if found.
