Letter to the Editor: Fourth Floor Angels

— Fourth Floor Angels

To the editor:

We just have to let this area know what a wonderful, talented staff they have on the fourth floor at Mid-Columbia Medical Center.

My husband recently had two surgeries there and everyone, including the custodial and food service staff, made it bearable to be there for 17 days. I stayed with him every night and during the cold snap our pipes froze at home, so they went beyond there services and let me shower there so that my husband wouldn’t know about the pipes. I didn’t want him to have any added worries while he was trying to get well.

(Thank-you Chenowith Water and Gene La Doucer, as well, for your help at home, so I could stay with Mike.)

We can’t say enough about them, not only did my husband get super care from the nurses and CNA’s, but so did I!

Plus, we had such great care from Dr. Mathison and his team.

It is never fun to go through any surgery, but we have such great confidence in him and his choices. He thinks everything through before he acts and never makes a quick decision. We thank you for that.

We just wanted The Dalles to know how lucky we are to have these talented medical specialists working for us.

So many people, in this hard old world, find time to make it harder by complaining. But those who lovingly shout out the praises of local medical specialists are, IMVHO, angels themselves. They make the world visibly happier, and only God knows how far such a kind act as taking the time to write this letter. Know that it will be shared with people you'll never meet, and would probably like. The Ripple Effect is real. Blessings, Mr. and Mrs. Brice.
