Dear Dr. Bonds and Dr. Jones,
My husband was brought to the Blue Mountain Hospital emergency room by ambulance from Monument Valley last month and received care from you both. I believe you saved his life by determining the nature of his illness, locating a bed for him in the intensive care unit at LDS hospital in Salt Lake City and arranging air transportation to get him there.
He was diagnosed with ischemic colitis and, fortunately, responded to antibiotics and avoided surgery for the intestinal blockage. We have been home now for just over a month and, although he is still weak, he is doing well, finally eating a normal diet, and slowly regaining a few of the thirteen pounds he lost during his illness.
We are so very grateful for the attention he received at Blue Mountain Hospital and would like to make a small contribution as a token of our appreciation.
