As I’m sure you all can imagine, this has been a very busy week for me. However, amid all the activity, I wanted to take a moment to thank everybody for the kindness and support you have shown me. I am proud of my work to improve drug safety and excited to see such a positive response to this effort.

After eight years of hard work on the case, I am very relieved to be able to reconnect with friends and loved ones. In the coming days, I hope to begin responding to the many kind messages I have received from all over the world since news of this case broke on Monday.

Many thanks again.
