Man hopes for return of emergency bag

As I stand on my patio, happy to be here, a week ago was much different. I was sick and went to the Royal Jubilee Hospital by ambulance.

Unfortunately, when the ambulance loaded me up, they left my hospital emergency bag sitting on the street.

When they went back to get it, it was gone. Someone came along, found the bag and kept it. I wish I were able to offer a reward to get it back, but I can’t.

It saddens me the bag and its contents were taken by some stranger’s hands. There are personal items, medical items and medicine inside.

Because of this, the past week has been traumatic, trying to straighten this out. Please, if you read this, think about your actions. Walking away with my emergency bag is really bad karma.
