Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
On Monday, April 3, 2023 I had an emergency appendectomy at about 9pm in the evening with Dr. Kristen Gyetvai's OR team.
This was unexpected and was my first surgery. I was so scared that I was in tears when I got to the OR, but all the nurses were so kind and friendly and helped me to feel safe.
A special thank you to the nurses in Emerg who took care of me before my diagnosis and reassured me prior to surgery, the nurse with the dark hair and pink scrubs that wheeled me to and from the OR and reassured me that I was just taking a big nap and I would get a popsicle after like a little kid, to the nurse that told me we share a birthday (of the same year even!) and distracted me by talking about Tom Hanks movies and the Elvis movie right before I fell asleep, and to the spunky nurse that did my intake (I think her name was Jenny?) that kept me positive, and to my surgeon Dr. Gyetvai who answered all my questions prior to surgery. Also the nurses in the Recovery Room who took care of me and reassured me when I woke up.
Unfortunately I was too distraught and medicated to remember the names of all the nurses who helped with my surgery, but I would love to be able to find out who they all are and one day be able to thank them in person. So if any of you ever read this, please reach out. I so appreciate you all!
I had such an amazing experience with the OR Day Surgery Team at Windsor Regional -MET Campus. Thank you so much for taking care of me and easing my fears. Thank you for all the work you do!
