A big shout out to the medical staff and workers at Sanford Bemidji Medical Center and Sanford Bagley Medical Center.

I spent three weeks in the hospital in Bemidji and Bagley and I cannot say enough about the care I was given while there.

The staff was polite, caring and very helpful and did their job as they are trained to do it, despite what the COVID-19 pandemic has done to everyone these past two years.

Some of the nurses work 12-hour shifts, which gets old after a while, but they carry on.

A nurse and I were walking down the hall one day and as we came to the nurses' station, there were two or three nurses sitting at their desks, when just then, baby music came over the loudspeakers. I'm sure you have all heard it at one time or another, signifying a baby has just been born.

I turned to the nurses and said, "Another taxpayer has been born," and one of the nurses said, "No, another nurse." It touched my heart when she said that, but that is just the way they think — caring and loving their profession.

May God bless all of them and give them the strength to carry on.
