Lesson learned from fall

Senior says lack of hydration is an easy problem to solve

I would like to thank the good Samaritan who called the ambulance when I fell on Inkman Road on Friday, July 26. I was taken by ambulance to Hope hospital, where the doctor and nurses did tests to determine why I fell. I fell because I was dehydrated.

Now, I take a bottle of water when I walk to town. Thanks again to the person who called the ambulance and the ambulance drivers and the doctor and nurses at the Hope hospital. I even got lunch at the Hope hospital.

There is a lesson here. Elderly people should always have water when they walk in hot weather. I was trying to be 27 instead of 67.

Thank goodness I live in a small town, where people still care about each other.
