I can't believe you're back here so fast. I went in the day before you for the robotic, so we're about even in this process. Sounds like you're getting along just fine. Anyway, we've both crossed the finish line to this side and we're marching forward.

Best of luck for a continued speedy recovery.

Regards;

George
