Since last Sunday, RP has been getting an up-close and personal experience with health care delivery in Oregon. Our conclusion: From the 911 call, to the EMTs, the ambulance service, emergency room staff, and the ICU personnel, we've experienced efficiency, courtesy, professionalism, and knowledge that goes way beyond just competence.
We've also learned a lot about the inner workings of our lungs as the doctors searched for the blood clots that caused a pulmonary embolism. So until the clots are dissolved and we're back home -- which we anticipate will be in a few days -- they don't have online connections in the hospital for patients (maybe not such a bad thing...) and posting will be a little bit slow.
Best wishes to all of our readers; we look forward to returning shortly.
