Are you apprehensive about an upcoming surgery at the Whitehorse General Hospital? I hope this note will aid in easing this.

I’d like to thank the wonderful doctors, nurses and staff at WGH, as well as the specialists brought to Yukon.

On Sept. 30 I undertook my third surgery in 10 months under general anesthetic and cannot imagine a more professional, caring team from the pre-operative appointments to leaving the hospital.

I was cared for each step of the way by friendly faces. When I woke from the anesthetic with the first vision being of this year’s moose hunt, well, I must have been in a pretty happy place.

I then turned my head to see a post-op nurse literally sitting at my side (I apologize for continued babbling in “recovery”).

To the nurses in the surgical ward, I hope I was able to make your caring for me as pleasant as it was for me. Lastly, a special thanks to the kitchen staff who already had my food cut!

I can only speak for myself, but after three experiences in a short time, I believe you can be rest assured you will be in good care.
