    Please look at the sentence for mistakes.

    Hi,

    Is it correct to say "This is Mrs. Smithís son. Mum cannot come today too, as the pain hasnít gone yet. In fact, itís quite increased."?

    P.S. Please let me know if you have a better way of conveying the same information.

    Thanks

    That's fine, Asad. It's only a phone message. There are certainly other ways of expressing it but you've communicated your message just fine.

    Thank you, RK.

    By the by, is it wrong to use "too" there?

    Great regards, Asad

    We usually use 'either' with a negative, Asad; cannot

    OK RK. Actually I always used "too" by now, since I did know this use "either". So was I wrong or was it fine too?
