Now to the humorous story. I was leaving on the full elevator and the young man in the front put on a khaki colored back pack. I really liked it and commented that I did. I think he said people have called it a man purse. I commented it looks like a lady purse and before I could get the TOO out everyone on the elevator broke out in laughter. I was mortified and was trying to explain I liked it and finally just said I'm 68 what can I say. Actually I've never had a filter but age is a good excuse. I get to the back door to go to my truck and oh my goodness that young man is holding the door for everyone to exit. I stopped at the doorway and told him he could close it in my face he had every right. Instead he held the door and then gave me a big hug. That hug meant so much because I don't get them very often and they are good medicine for older people. He didn't let go until he walked me all the way to my truck which I had a hard time finding. I told him he didn't have to go to that trouble and insisted I believe saying it's a hospital courtesy but I knew it was the courtesy of a kind young man.
I would like to say that his wife (the employee) is very lucky to have him.
It's sometimes the small things that keep people coming back.
I was also a patient at the hospital from September 21 for a total of five days on the 8th floor where I was treated very well. Yes I had to wait in ER for an extended amount of time but they were bombarded with an enormous number of walk in patients. My doctor, Dr Wynn, took the time to come to the ER lobby to talk to me and prepare my inpatient orders. Things like this, the small and the large (the doctor going above and beyond) is the reason I continue to make that drive from Durant.
Dr. Lindsey and the entire TMC-ER staff were amazing. All the way down to the attendant out back of the ER who helped park my car!
I would like to say a very special thank you to the nurse (who wasn't Laci's nurse) that took the time to go down to the gift shop and by my daughter a rainbow/
My mom had surgery on her foot and was able to come home yesterday which is also the day that Laci finally opened her eyes!
Yesterday, we celebrated our volunteers at their annual Awards Banquet! Over 120 TMC volunteers faithfully serve our hospital patients, their families, visitors and staff. Many were recognized for their extraordinary service measured in both years of service and hours worked in 2017. Thank you for your hard work and dedication! #NationalVolunteerWeek #HCVolunteerWeek
