Eh? Let me read that again

I received this letter from a patient and could not read a word of it.

I visited, in case it was a cry for help, but in fact it was a thank-you note, which was even more embarrassing.

The patient was concerned that I could not read his handwriting. He has no medical complaints and has recently been admitted to hospital and just wanted us to know he was better.

I would be interested to know what colleagues would do in similar circumstances.
