This last Friday (Feb. 1), while skiing on Whistler Mountain and watching the Peak to Creek Team races near the finishing area, I had the misfortune to pass out. In no time, many of the bystanders rushed to my assistance.
Our longtime Whistler Ski Patroller/Racer Cathy Jewett took charge and several other nurses, doctors; ski patrollers monitored my heart and assisted to make me feel more comfortable with their jackets and encouraging words.
One of Whistler’s ever-ready ambulance teams ferried me to the Whistler Medical Clinic. You cannot believe the service I received by the doctors, nurses, and technicians in our health care centre. Every conceivable tool and care was used to analyze my problem. I probably will need some additional test in the near future.
Thanks to all of you — you are a fabulous team. Also a big thanks to all our friends who assisted and called and showed their support to Trudy and me.
We are so lucky to live in such a caring community.
