“It all started after we had my mother-in-law over for dinner on Mother’s Day,” Burton said Tuesday.

“When she was going home she bent over to put on her shoes and it was like a bomb went off in her head and we called 911. She was taken to Credit Valley Hospital for a CT scan and they found two aneurisms that had erupted.

“Credit Valley didn’t have a neurosurgeon and neither did Trillium Hospital. There was one at Toronto Western but he was in surgery. Then 40 minutes later we found out there wasn’t a bed there and they couldn’t take her.
