My relationship to Royal Hobart Hospital
/ Why I’m here today
Pain in the hip and leg. I've been here a few times. I had open heart surgery. They put in a mechanical valve on 22nd January 2002.
What I love about the RHH Community
/ or hope for it
Oh yes, I had a mini stroke. My son brought me in. When we got here all the staff shouted "we got one, we got one". They got a patient under 3 hours from a mini-stroke. When they rang up the main doctor he was in Perth, and he flew back that day. So that was good.
Something I’m personally hoping for right now
My 2 grandsons have this thing from both parents. Hardly anyone has it in Australia. You get it at age 26. It's a disease that affects the kidneys. I'm hoping they'll have a miracle.
