    Florida Hospital Connerton Long Term Acute Care

    A woman undergoing treatment at a Florida hospital for a long-lasting illness had a special visitor Monday: her horse.

    Christine Carbonneau’s long time partner, Gary, arranged for her horse, Ireland, to visit her at Florida Hospital Connerton Long Term Acute Care Facility in Land O’Lakes.

    Carbonneau, 58, has had a long illness and is trying to wean off a ventilator, hospital officials said. Gary thought she seemed a little low in spirits and thought she might benefit from a visit from Ireland.

    Hospital staff made arrangements for Ireland's visit and were able to get Carbonneau off the ventilator and outside so she could be reunited with her horse.
