No hospital beds - Public letter
I'm currently in Vancouver at St. Paul's hospital with my 78 year old dad and my 73 year old mother who ended up here for valve replacement on her heart and a vein transplant on her leg.
Dad and I are staying in a nearby hotel and my parents have been here for 28 days. My sisters and I are taking turns helping out because my dad also needs someone around.
Four days ago the doctors said mom is good to go to Prince George, she still needs a hospital but she doesn't need to be here. Perfect we thought, all our family is there, we can help her get up and out of that bed and also the financial burden of being in Vancouver would be lifted.
