I would like to express my thanks to the staff and emergency room doctor at Weisbrod Memorial Hospital, the Eads Ambulance Service and the AirMed staff for their care and assistance while I was ill.
I'd also like to thank the Eads Medical Clinic staff and Dawn Back for recognizing and acting on their concerns regarding my post-surgery complications. It's good to know we have these services close by in an emergency. You are all very appreciated!
