A hearty welcome to you Sam. Glad you found us, and happy you are back on this side after your surgery. Sounds like you had a pretty good event so far. Nothing like being on the beach in Florida, that part sounds pretty good. Please keep us posted about your progress and recovery. And as James suggested above, perhaps make a signature so we can see your path so far. Plenty of people here will be more than willing to support you and share information.
