I just moved to Ilwaco four months ago. Due to a severe infection from diabetes, I went to the emergency room at the Ocean Beach Hospital in Ilwaco on Friday, Nov. 13.

I had a four-inch growth on my lower right stomach which spread the following day up to my armpit 12 inches across, covering my entire right side. I had high fevers and excruciating pain for six days. The nurses hovered around me like angels around the clock. "Intensive Care" in other hospitals could take a lesson from these good folks, and I wasn't even in ICU.
