I do not have access to those details where I am now, so I will open this up to other experts. Hopefully, someone will be along with an Answer shortly. Please do not send a reply to this because that will return the question to me and delay your Answer.
Hi, I am a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected. I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you! Wendy
