JOHN HUNTER HOSPITAL
The Hon. LYNDA VOLTZ
[9.33 p.m.]: Tonight I refer to the wonderful work that is being done by the staff at John Hunter Hospital, particularly those in the intensive care unit. From my experience hospital staff members are miracle workers who do extraordinary things. Recently I had the pleasure of attending at that hospital the wedding of Sally and Jason O'Connell. Jason has been on dialysis for 10 years. Unfortunately he suffered a major heart attack and was not expected to survive, but thanks to the miraculous work of the hospital staff Jason has been in the intensive care unit for some time. Originally Sally and Jason were to be married on the tenth of the tenth 2010. However, when Sally became pregnant the wedding was postponed until after the birth of the baby, which is due in a few weeks. Happily Jason regained consciousness after his heart attack and he was able to be wheeled out of the hospital to be married. Jason and Sally were happy because they were able to be married before the birth of their baby. I thank Dr Bellamy, Dr Seehra and all the staff in the intensive care and cardiac units at John Hunter Hospital for helping Jason and Sally to achieve their special day.
