A letter from Leyardia Black

To my dear friends and patients of my Lopez and San Juan Island communities (Orcas and Shaw please don’t feel left out, it’s just I don’t know as many of you.)

I am honored and humbled by the outpouring of love and offers of help from so many. Due to the good thinking of my husband and the EMT’s, who got me hauled off to Harborview in spite of my protests, and the expertise of the surgeons and staff there, I expect to make a full recovery from my cerebral vascular aneurism.

While I am still a little slow and weak, I am hopeful of being able to get back to work in a month or so. It will likely take me a while to get back to a full schedule so bear with me.

I love you all.
