We have an update on ABC7 film critic Roger Ebert, who is recovering from surgery to restore his ability to speak.

Roger is recuperating from the procedure to rectify complications from previous operations. He remains cancer-free, but would like to talk about the movies again, and enjoy the milk shakes and coffee he has missed for months.

His wife Chaz had this to say Friday morning: "We are grateful to everyone for the continued prayers and concern. The surgery went well, and we look forward to giving you more good news about Roger's recovery in days to come."
