When the Pines Football Netball Club step onto Frankston Park for their round one MPNFL game, premiership winning coach Paddy Swayne will be grateful just to be there.
This month the 50 year old suffered a cardiac episode at home and taken to Frankston Hospital, where he underwent “life-changing” pacemaker surgery.
“On behalf of my family and I, we would like to thank the Ambulance Victoria staff, and all the nurses and doctors at Peninsula Health for their professionalism and level of care,” says Paddy, whose new pacemaker will help normalise his heart rate.
“Everyone ensured I was safe and quickly on that road to recovery, all the while keeping my wife informed during some difficult hours. I feel extremely fortunate to live in a state that has such a great level of medical knowledge, resources and care for it’s citizens.”
All the very best Paddy, to you and the Pines in season 2021.
