Letter to the editor-Mayberry

“I want to thank everyone at Mesa View Hospital, Mesquite, for the wonderful care and love they gave my husband, Frank  during his long illness over several years.   Frank had myelofibrosis and at first, on doctor’s orders, came to Mesa View for a blood infusion every month.    Later that went to every two weeks and finally to every  week  until he had to go on Hospice.     Frank died peacefully at home holding his son’s hand  after only five days on Hospice.

My family and I couldn’t be happier with Mesa View.     Everyone there treated Frank like a King. From the moment we stepped into the entrance to be greeted by a smiling Mary Ann or having paper work done by an efficient CJ or Val   our time there couldn’t be more pleasant.   Offers of a wheelchair were usually refused but it showed they were looking out for Frank. Charlie on the second floor always greeted us with a smile and a hug before she directed us to our favorite nurses, either, Sallie, Patti, Jocelyn or Lynn for the blood transfusion.    There were so many wonderful staff and nurses, like Jason and so many who would stop by to lighten Frank’s day and I thank you all.   Nicki from the Cafetaria needs a mention too.    She knew exactly what Frank would eat, especially the cabbage soup which was so good for him.

Last week I was honored to receive from the staff and nurses of Mesa View a most beautiful basket arrangement of plants and orchids that are still looking so fresh.    Apart from all the wonderful condolence cards I received, it should have been me sending this to everyone at the Hospital and I do thank you all so much.     Mesa View is the best Hospital in Nevada.

Mesa View Home Care was wonderful too, for almost two years now, Nicole faithfully  would come to the house to change the dressing on Frank’s pic line.   When she couldn’t come, Erica or Sam might fill in and again with such professionalism and kindness these ladies were the tops.   Thank you so much.

Lastly, the Hospice ladies were amazing, from the lovely Amy who signed Frank on to Hospice and brought him special medication,  to gentle Cece who gave him sponge baths which really made him feel better.     Finally my Angel of Mercy, Becky came at just the right time at 2.30 a.m. when Frank breathed his last and she was the one who did all the paperwork and called the Funeral Directors and again I don’t know what I would have done without her at that early hour.    Again, my heartfelt thanks to all these ladies.

For a small town, we are very lucky to have such a caring, well educated group of professionals at our Mesa View Hospital;   Mesa View Home Care and Mesa View Hospice.    I am so thankful that we are blessed with their presence here in Mesquite.

Sincerely,

Eve Mayberry
