What a Week!

Hi friends,

Wow! It’s hard to believe that just over a week has passed since I made my debut — phew I am wiped!

On the morning of my public introduction every major media outlet in town came to meet me. There were cameras; there were questions; and there was even a Facebook poll setup to ask whether I am cute or creepy. I’ll be honest, that one hurt my feelings a little, but I do understand that an old hospital desperately in need of funding is not the first thing people think of when they want to cuddle.

I have enjoyed meeting so many interesting people — many of you have been my patients.  And I love the selfies, too!  Most of all, I love that so many people are now aware of the need to rebuild the Royal Alex. I’ve been waiting a long time and my rebuild must be approved; patient privacy, patient dignity and patient safety are at risk.

If you haven’t had a chance to see the coverage about me so far not to worry; I’ve compiled a list of all the links that are available online.

I have one request before you go.  Please don’t forget to click on the Email Your MLA button at the top of the page. It is absolutely vital that your MLA hears from you. It’s the best way that you can help this old gal, and it only takes a minute.

Remember, if I get funded patients win!
