It was time for me to go to bed :)

And now I have to be in the operating room in 90 minutes so I will be offline for a bit while I work at my "day job" ;)

But I will be back after clinic today.

I have reviewed your past questions and it looks like Dr. David has already addressed this issue.

What issues would you like to discuss at this point?
