Default Re: Hospitalized in Aruba...Have no fear!

john, no doubt in our minds that you did whatever you could and so did the hospital in aruba. some things are just meant to have a sad outcome no matter how hard we try to stop it.

our hearts and prayers are with you and your friend's family.

We cannot find any fault with the care in Aruba...except they could not treat major heart health problems (aortic valve surgery in his case).
We have not talked to his daughters since the funeral, but we hope that they know and believe that all that was possible was done by us, by the doctors, by the hospital in Aruba.
I have been in a blue mood about the whole trip, but I think the Aruba medical care was very good...and we tried to do all that we could for our friend. It was a bad situation with a poor outcome, but we did our best.
