💖💖A quick thank you to the NHS, especially Furness General Hospital, Ward 1 🏥👩⚕️👨⚕️
Whilst we battle the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus, it is so lovely to see all of the love and support for our NHS. Seeing windows filled with rainbows and people cheering, clapping and banging pots and pans at 8pm on a Thursday is nothing short of gorgeous and it is wonderful that their hard work and dedication is being celebrated during what is, for many, a really rubbish time.
Mike and I have another reason to thank the people of the NHS. Earlier this month, we found out that we were to go through our third miscarriage. Whilst this news was of course devastating, which somewhat eclipsed our worries about contracting the virus, we had no idea what this would mean for treatment and if I would even be able to go into hospital to be looked after.
We needn’t have worried. The staff on Ward 1, as they have been consistently throughout our first and second miscarriages, were nothing short of exceptional. It quickly became apparent that although a global pandemic may be taking place, and that additional measures were being implemented to address this, there were also patients that needed their help; pandemic or not. Mike and I were treated with the utmost care and attention, with such sincerity and sensitivity it made my heart warm despite a really upsetting situation. Each time we have been I’m always so blown away by the care and attention that the nurses, doctors and staff put into their care every single day.
So this is a small thank you, from our hearts to theirs. If you know someone that works at the hospital, please share this with them and let them know how grateful we are. That they continue to go into work so that we can be looked after in our hardest and lowest moments. We will never truly be able to repay that, but I hope that reading something like this helps them to know how much they are appreciated and admired.
Lots of love,
