To the two people who felt the need to leave notes on my windshield at the MV Hospital parking lot, I needed to drive myself to the ER early Thursday morning, which resulted in a five-day hospital stay.

I am writing this letter in response to the full page advertisement written by Barbara Schlesinger in the August 30 edition of the MV Times.
