I regret missing my last scheduled appointment, my apologies. The wrist has settled down remarkably well since I last saw you earlier in the year and I am getting back to somewhere near normal. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my grateful thanks and appreciation to you and all your team for your skill, care and expertise. Thanks!
