How are you? Thank you for your last letter, and the gift. I’ve been to Solarian space, so I haven’t had much time to write.
I’m no longer working on the Galaxia. I’m on a small freighter that needs my skills. Compared to the previous doctor on this ship, I’m receiving 90% less business! The crew is extra careful about avoiding injuries.
Due to some repairs and funding issues, we made landfall on a planet, to pick up spare change for the captain. I did some ad hoc surgery for some of the locals, and picked up some good money. One guy was touch and go there for a while, but I pulled his life back into his body. The poor lad was shot 3 times while cleaning his gun.
As a group, the crew and I tracked down a missing girl the authorities had given up looking for. We aren’t slackers like the local cops, we not only found the girl, we rescued 7 others who had been kidnapped. Don’t worry Mom, it wasn’t a dangerous place. I opened the door as a distraction to the kidnappers. 2 of them are now patients, and I’m giving them the extra care they need to get well again.
All my best to the family. I’ll be dropping a line more often now.
