New podcast episode at bedside of 76-year-old heart patient

Despite having two heart procedures in one week, Gloria Ring is counting her blessings.

We took our microphone to the bedside of the 76-year-old Northmead resident for a special podcast episode to capture the reality of life on Westmead Hospital’s busy cardiology ward — complete with a few interruptions from a cleaner hard at work in the bathroom!

Gloria talks about the scarily low heart rate that saw her admitted into hospital, praises the care she’s received from the “wonderful” staff, and even compliments the “beautiful” food.

She also reminisces on raising four boys in Seven Hills, and as we look forward to Valentine’s Day, shares a few tips from more than 50 years of marriage.
