Now that's what I call going above and beyond. <grin>

I wish you all the best with your recovery.

I have to have shoulder surgery on December 19th. Despite the fact that
I was never a big league pitcher, I apparently have managed to tear my
rotator cuff, and have some unusual bone growth and bursitis in the
shoulder/arm joint that needs to be removed. I will lose the use of my
right arm for several weeks, if not longer and am being told not to look
for a miraculous recovery, that it may be a year before I'm back to a
good arm again.

The perverse side of me is looking forward to the experience of doing
everything with my one non-dominant hand.

Any adaptive technology I should be checking out (besides Dragon, I
already have that in place)? I might as well use this down time for
research in my field...
