Very special people

Dear Editor,

Having just spent four weeks in intensive care in the Barlavento Hospital, I would like to record my extreme admiration of all the doctors, nurses and staff who looked after me so brilliantly.

I can only thankfully remember about two weeks of my story as I was in an induced coma for some days. 

However, my recovery is swift. The skill, dedication, care and so importantly, the cheerfulness of all those who looked after me are beyond praise.

They are very special people up there, they are all beautiful too.

I hope you can print this so as to record another very positive, if different, aspect of our Algarve.

Martin Baker, Portimão
