Your Team Did More Than Just Their Job

I had to pay an unfortunate visit to your hospital. My boy of almost eight years was hit by a car in front of my house as I watched in helplessness. I was frantic and didn’t know what to do. My instincts kicked in as I raced to get to BluePearl.

As I raced down the road, I hoped and prayed that my boy would make it. He passed away halfway to your hospital. I knew he was gone. I was deeply lost at that point. Deeply.

I pulled into your establishment honking my horn and yelling crazily for help. I didn’t know what to do. Without delay, your staff rushed to Nanook’s assistance. They ran to my car and got him into CPR in what seemed to be nanoseconds. I’m not sure who the person was that was speaking to me in that room because I was hysterical. I lost my boy. My only son.

My brother arrived. Then my parents came. Everything started feeling real. Never has my family experienced grief and that kind of trauma to a family member. It was beyond hard.

My real reason for all of this back story is to let you know how hurt, sad, helpless and lost we all were on that horrible day. For all that we endured that day, I wanted to send a very big THANK YOU, from the heart!!! Dr. Lianos and your staff were absolutely incredible. I’ve never seen action taken like that for an animal.

We will remember you and your staff as we all begin to heal and laugh at his awesome memories, photos and videos. Please pass on my sincere thanks to your staff that was there that Sunday morning. I wish I knew each of their names so I could personally thank each one of them.

I know it’s their job to do this type of thing, but to the people who experience the trauma we have endured your team did more than just a job.

Thanks so much, Darryl J.
