The only way he could go home (his last wish) was to be allowed to go on a cardiac IV med. Kyla worked all day yesterday with the help of St Vincent’s and Rural Metro ambulance, along with a few of her Premier fairy Godmothers and long story short, the gentleman arrived home early yesterday evening, the nurse was there to admit him, and his comfort meds had…
