It's been a crazy week. My mother-in-law has been here since Sunday and will be here a few more days. Also, as you know, my uncle has been in our local hospital even though he lives over 90 miles away. He became very ill while on vacation in our area and is just being discharged today. My cousins live near him and in Virginia so they have had quite the week as well, with travelling and being away from home.
My one cousin left the hospital late at night on Wednesday and found, in the middle of a torrential storm, that she had a flat tire. Mr. Lime went over to change it for her and we kept it at our house until we could take it to the tire shop for her the next day. Today when I stopped by my uncle's room she told me the service manager refused to allow her to pay for fixing the tire.. He told her just to take care of her dad and get home safely but if she felt she had to she could tip the fellow who did the actual work. She also told me about a nurse on the floor who seemed to go the extra mile to make sure her dad and the rest of the family was comfortable during his stay.
This week I'm counting Mr. Lime, the service manager, and the nurse who all went out of their way to help my family members in an emergency and extended time of need. A big thanks to each of them.
