In considerable pain, I reported to the A&E department of the South West Acute Hospital on Sunday morning, March 25, at around 11.30 am.
I was attended by a nurse within 15 minutes and by a doctor within an hour.
By 2pm I had been X-rayed and given an ECG test.
A CT scan on Monday revealed the cause of my discomfort. I spent four nights in a clean, warm and comfortable private room with spacious bathroom, television and reliable wi-fi connection.
I was discharged with good advice in time to enjoy Easter with my family.
I would like to express my gratitude to the cheerful and hard-working team responsible for my care on Ward 9.
The people of Fermanagh and Tyrone are fortunate to have a marvellous, modern hospital run by such dedicated professionals.
