January 11, 2014

To: Delta County Memorial Hospital Emergency Room Staff; Doctors Gordon, Padua and Maleto; ER nurses; Dr. Brighton and his staff; the Radiology staff; and the many others who provided service to me from December 23 through 29, 2014.

It is so refreshing to be able to write a letter celebrating the exceptional care given to me through the dates above as the need for an emergency gall bladder surgery arose. I spent three days, 24th, 27th, and 29th of December in the ER as tests were done, surgery accomplished, and a return for problems on the last of those two dates. I was treated so kindly, daringly and gently. I was also there on the 23rd for tests before the surgery, then on Christmas day for recovery from the surgery. In all, every bit of the care I was given was special from every discipline.

"Thank you" seems hardly adequate for all that was done for me and the considerations given my wife as well. Those were special days for all the staff to have celebrated with their families and yet there was only the kindest of treatment for me.

If I have missed anyone that gave me care during that time it is only because I might have been a bit "out of it" at times due to the pain and can't remember exactly the events. Please pass this around for all who cared for me to see and especially to the administration for their perusal, they need to know how professional you all are.

I am feeling much better now, looking forward to a good 2014 year, and its my wish for each of you to be blessed and thanked many times through the coming year.
