Dr. Geneva will be away on vacation for a few days. She wanted me to forward this email to you.

We are sorry to inform you that you’re scheduled surgery appointment has been canceled. At this point in time we do not have the technology to leech the green tinted color from your skin, nor do we specialize in the whitening of the sclera. We also do not have the capabilities to remove the small, dumbbell-like screws from your neck — although we suggest you consult a trauma surgeon in the near future.
We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope that you will accept a free, full-body massage (as you seem a bit stiff lately).
