Closure of clinic a huge loss

I was having my weekly conversation with one of the pharmacists at the DVT Clinic at UHNBC, going over dosage changes for my Warfarin.

At the end of the call, I said something to the effect of "I will talk to you next week."

That's when she said "There is something I need to tell you, the clinic will be closing and since you are stable, you will be transferred to your doctor's care for the duration of your Warfarin use."

We had a chat about the whys. Well, actually, I think I wailed "Why?"

These ladies have been with me through hiccups in my cancer treatment, surgeries, hospital stays, and, more recently, the loss of my husband. They not only looked after my physical health but they were there to support me with visits at the hospital, a call to see how I was doing or words of encouragement and kindness after my recent loss.

I am floored because these gals have been my go-to for over two and one half years. I trust everything they tell me.

I will miss you more than you can imagine, the information you were always able to supply me with whenever I would ask.

Kyla, Katie, Susan and Andrea ( I hope I have not forgotten anyone), I wish you nothing but the best. You are the best. Kind, caring and professional. My warmest wishes to all of you and I hope I run into you in the community soon.

What a huge loss for our hospital.
