Hi RM,

I"m happy to hear your surgery is over, and you at home recuperating. The voice recognition software has come a long way since it first appeared on the market, so you'll find it really helpful.

Take care of yourself, don't do ANYTHING you were told to really is critical to your recovery that you follow all instructions exactly as indicated. I hope you get lots of rest and that any other pain you have will just disappear so you can recuperate quickly and without complications.

Big hugs,

      Thank you for the update retiredmom! It's not too easy to do after surgery, that's for sure.

   Take your time and rest up, as I'm sure you need it right now.

      Hope you get to feeling better soon!

Sending you healing hugs & prayers. I am glad to hear that everything went well. Hopefully the pain subsides soon!
