Thank you to caring staff, top to bottom

I was admitted to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett in early July with a life-threatening condition. I spent a week on the Critical Care floor and another week on the second floor. I wanted to take minute to thank everybody involved with my care from the staff in Emergency, nurses, doctors, specialists and the room maintenance people.

I would to give special kudos to Tim, my nurse on the C.C. floor. His attention and sense of humor were a welcome relief. I know the hospital receives many patients and we are probably hard to remember, but the staff will remember me if I mention the “Catcher’s Mask.”

Last, but not least, if I could, mention my wife Marcia of 24 years who was there every minute and I feel truly blessed. Thanks to all and keep up the great work.
