Club Almoner Thelma Hutchison and our very own Cheryl Pisterman have both been in the wars lately. Cheryl Pisterman is now at home recovering after firstly, having an operation on her hip at Cabrini Hospital in Malvern, and then secondly, contracting an infection which turned out to be an extremely tough bug indeed. Cheryl was admitted to hospital on February 17th and returned home on March 20th - quite long enough to qualify her to write a review of the hospital food on TripAdvisor. Cheryl is now being well looked after by Cabrini's Hospital at Home service and has come close to attending a club meeting on one or two occasions.
As for Thelma, she has just returned home from the ROCAN bike ride, which raises funds for ovarian cancer research. Thelma came off her bike and was quite badly hurt, ending up in Albury Hospital where she had to have not one but two operations on her elbow. Thelma was in hospital for a few days, before being discharged last Thursday night in time to catch up with the peloton in Wangaratta, for the final dinner. Now safely at home Thelma will be back at Rotary soon.
Get well soon Cheryl and Thelma. We've missed you!
