I would like to extend a special thank you to Social Worker Lynnette Huddleston.
My father recently had a stroke and while he was in the hospital, I still continued to work. I was able to call and receive updates from my mother.
Unfortunately, my mother’s cell phone battery died just after we received the news that my father was going to require surgery. Lynnette called and made sure I knew when the surgery was scheduled so I could leave work and spend some time with my father before surgery. I was also able, then, to spend the rest of the day with my mother while he was in surgery.
My father came through the surgery and all went well. However, at his age, and with his multiple medical issues, there is always a huge risk that it won’t.
Lynnette has always been so very helpful and caring. I hope Boone realizes just what a valuable employee they hove in her.
I also want to thank Patient Care Tech Holly who did an incredible job with dad.
My father is just an old country boy, so being in the hospital is very traumatic for him, these two amazing ladies went out of their way to make him feel comfortable. Thank you, ladies!
