From the wife of a patient who had suffered a massive stroke and was one of the ICU's first neuro-intervention patients:
People really cannot begin to understand the "intensive" care that is given 24 hours of the day. It was important to me that my husband would have a nurse who he would respond to and trust. When I needed a big hug Linda was there to hug and pray and cry with. She understands. Her phrase "not today" touches many hearts. The physical and emotional times my husband shared with Linda was the best medicine indeed. Our lives have been changed. The entire team on the 4th floor is to be commended for jobs very well done. To all, my heartfelt thanks and prayers.
Mrs. Linda is a kind and compassionate soul. She helped guide our family through a very difficult time. She answered any and all questions we had. She made our family feel as if she was a part of it and cared as much as we do. Her gentle soothing words and shining smile was the comfort our family needed. Mrs. Linda is one of God's angels sent to us in our time of need. On behalf of our entire family, we would like to celebrate the comfort and peace Mrs. Linda provided to us.
