My husband Erle has just returned from a weeks stay Nelson Hospital, where he had his big bowel operation to reverse the previous operation when he was left with a bag. He now has it all rejoined and he is normal again. A very big long complicated operation, he was treated really well while in the hospital and has made a reasonably good recovery, though it will take time to be really back to normality. A long recuperation
I was fortunate to be able to stay in Altrusa House at Nelson Hospital, as it was within the hospital grounds I could visit Erle 3 -4 times a day after he had his operation. The is a wonderful facility, it is fully air conditioned so is always cosy, there are 6 rooms and people came and go frequently, all of them nice caring people who have a loved one in hospital. We all gave each other support and comfort as needed. Cost only $30 a night, and some food is also supplied, mainly for breakfasts. Very peaceful restful home away from home, a God Send for me and many others.
