I was recently discharged from the Acute Rehab facility and now that I am home, I need to say thank you for the care I received there. I was vacationing in Tahiti when I crashed a moped. I thought my life had ended there. I made it into St Jude's emergency room on 5/28/2016, and life began again for me. The care I received while I spent the next 4 weeks of my life in that hospital was phenomenal. My husband and I agreed that we felt as though we had this huge TEAM all pulling for me. The food was good, not what hospital food is supposed to be.
The rehab team took me from terrified to go home, to being home and so grateful. They taught me so much and I will be forever grateful to this group of individuals that dedicate their lives to improving the quality of life for others.
I never thought much about "nurses" before my accident, other than that I could never do that. My eyes have been opened as to just what they do. I love nurses and nursing aides. Their kindness and compassion. I can never thank them enough.
I am home today because of the staff at St Jude, and I truly feel that I owe them my life. They taught my husband and I how to heal and so much more.
