Letter to the Editor:

Re: Excellence in Care: BAMC ER, BAMC Staff, Augustana Manor Staff

On Oct. 22, 2013 I had to be taken to the BAMC Emergency Room in the wee hours of the morning. Little did I know at that time, I was suffering from a life-threatening infection. The day before I seemed perfectly healthy. Dr. Erdman and Dr. Stein moved quickly to determine what could be wrong by having various tests performed. They also called Dr. Sonnenburg from Northern Lights Clinic and he came to the ER in a matter of minutes to perform another test.

From BAMC’s ER, I was transported by ambulance to Aurora BayCare ICU in Green Bay. I was sent to Aurora BayCare because our area does not have a neurosurgeon or a facility to do neurosurgery.

I credit Dr. Erdman and Dr. Stein for saving my life. Their expertise, efficiency and professionalism along with the expert care from the entire ER staff and the technicians who took the CT scan and MRI worked as a team to get me where I needed to be.

After being at Aurora BayCare for two weeks, I was transported to Augustana Manor for an additional three weeks of care. Again, the care I received from Dr. Mantei, the nurses, physical therapists and Augustana staff was outstanding. The entire staff showed how much they cared about me as their patient.

When I finally got to go home, I had to go to BAMC for daily IV treatments for three more weeks. Sometimes I was given the IV by floor nurses; but for the most part, they were done in the Out-Patient Surgery Department. Every person who helped me couldn’t have been more compassionate, caring and professional.

From my journey, I have a new perspective and appreciation for what Marinette has to offer regarding medical care, and it is excellent. Thank you to all who took part in helping me move forward in my road to recovery. You will never be forgotten.

Sincerely,

Ken O’Brien

Thank you, Bill Walker

Last week my water pipes froze. I couldn’t find anyone to thaw out the pipes. I called my friend Bill Walker to see if he knew of anyone who could unthaw my pipes. He replied he would be over in a half hour. Before I could say anything, he hung up the phone. The next thing I knew the doorbell rings and it’s Bill Walker. He went into the basement to look at the pipes. My wife, Mary, went downstairs to help him. They were down in the basement for an hour and Bill had hollered to try the water, but nothing happened. After another hour, Bill hollered to try again and it worked. Having a 91 year old unthaw our water pipes was very special to my wife and I. This is an example of true grit.

Wayne and Mary Jessel,

Marinette



Times Editor:

Did another activist change Mandela’s heart?

Regarding Nelson Mandela, was it possible a conversion took place?

How would the apparent communist and activist Mandela, who spent 27 years in prison, come out a new man? Is it possible another activist had a part in his change of heart? 

When Mandela was released from prison, his message and actions were like those of an activist who espoused that same message more than 2,000 years ago. That activist died on a cross for his beliefs and actions.

Mandela’s beliefs, actions and results have been celebrated, and rightly so. But is there a message in all that occurred?

Willard Lund,

Madison
