Good care where you're not 'just a number'

Dear editor,

I would like to thank the staff at Little River Medical Center. To Dr. Clyde Smith, surgeon, Dr. Janelle House and everyone that helped take care of my grandson, I say "thank you."

My grandson had been running summer track in San Antonio, when he became ill. We took him to the hospital where we learned that his appendix had ruptured and set up an infection. Dr. Smith took him in and did surgery. By the grace of God, he is well and getting ready for youth football.

I would like for the nurses and CNAs to know how much I appreciate everything they did.

I know that he would have been cared for at a larger hospital, but he would have been just a number. We were able to be close to home and received the best possible care for him.
