Montana Thomas Donation Story
Donald Thomas and his daughter Kathy Herron sat down to discuss the care that Montana Thomas, Donald’s wife and Kathy’s mother, received at Sistersville General Hospital and why their experience led them to donate to the hospital.
Donald: I’m a minister and I’ve been preaching since 1956. I still serve two churches. Montana and I have been married 70 years. Four children, two boys, two girls, eight grandsons, and one granddaughter, seven great grand-children.
Kathy Herron: She came into the hospital, the doctors office here, and had a heart rate of 180 or 160 and they transferred her to Marietta Hospital. She ended up having to have blood transfusions, electrolyte replacements, pills, and IV shots to get rid of fluids from her extremities. So, she didn’t like going to the hospital but we finally talked her into that. But, after a while the doctors realized they were fixing one problem and causing two others. So, she wanted to go home. She wanted to go to the Sistersville hospital. So, the doctors agreed that this was the place for her. So, that’s why we transferred her to Sistersville.
