They know us and our history, so we are lucky really as that means our hospital and health practitioners can give us really good treatment. Their farm is going downhill fast as their eldest child has been in hospital now for six months. The whole family is in Perth as the child is dying. A couple of weeks ago the father went back to the farm but that was just so difficult. . . . The cost of living in the city and the cost of hospital parking along with their absence from their family business has been disastrous for this family. A nurse was recruited to this rural mining town. When she got there she found she could earn $150 000 a year driving a truck, so she resigned from the hospital and went and worked in the mine.
