First, let me explain why I am just now writing this letter.

On Oct. 30, 2020, I fell at a downtown Arab business (which I won’t name because I don’t want anyone to think my accident was their fault).

I fell and broke my right arm between 12:30 and 1 p.m.

I have been unable to write, type or text until now.

This is a big shout out to my angels and heroes in Arab.

Immediately when I fell, the business owner called 911.

In, it seemed like seconds, the angels from Arab Fire and Rescue were there.

They asked if I was hurt, and I really didn’t think I was. They moved my purse and my right hand was at a 90-degree angle.

By the time they finished my vitals, the ambulance angels were there to take me to the hospital.

They immediately got me in the ambulance and took me to Marshall Medical Center North.

They were waiting for me when I got there.

A nurse by the name of Jeff was there and took my vitals and went to get me medicine for the pain.

Next the X-ray people came to the room and x-rayed my arm. Then the nurse brought in a piece of equipment to set my arm.

They sent x-ray personnel back and using the equipment (It looked like a clothes line pole), he set my arm.

They gave me medicine and the number of the TOC orthopedic center.

My daughter and I were in the car leaving MMCN at 1:34 p.m. I have never had such excellent service from a medical facility.

As their sign on the lawn says – “MMCN is certainly a large group of Heroes.”

Thank you.
