Thank you so much for posting that Lyn. As you know I am a nurse too.....I am going to tell you a true story......
Back in the early 1980's I was working in a CCU at Waterman Memorial Hospital in Eustis, Fl.......the hospital staff was all abuzz during our night shift. An elderly gentlemen on the medical floor had disappeared along with his IV pole and IV medication. He was quite ill, the police were called etc.
A nurse remembered him saying several times he had to go to Disney World before he died. Disney World was on the South side of Orlando about
70 miles away if I remember correctly.
Guess what......when the ticket booths
opened in the early am the cars waiting in the parking lot (at Disney World) started inching forward. A car stopped at a booth to buy a ticket and inside an elderly gentlemen with an IV pole ln the front seat asked for a ticket. The police were alert
ed....as he later told the nurses back at the hospital he could see the ferry boats, the tram train and that was enough to give him hope.
The owner of the car that had been hot wired and stolen from the hospital parking lot did not press charges (you guessed it)! The elderly man did get well and the report we later received was that someone did take him to Disney World.
The elderly are so precious. Andrea
