Should you like another Macro Edit following your revision to evaluate whether you have solved the problems addressed in the initial Macro Edit, I'm happy to offer you a second pass for 30% off the initial rate.
However, I will need visible MS Word's track changes so I can follow what exactly has changed in your manuscript. If you'd like a different follow-up service, just get in touch for a specific rate.
I generally try to avoid rushing through a manuscript unless absolutely necessary as I like to make sure I can give a manuscript the time and attention it deserves. That's why I usually ask for 4 weeks for a full edit. A faster turnaround is possible but not guaranteed. However, if necessary, I do offer an "express service". Since such a short turnaround has an enormous impact on my entire schedule, this needs to be discussed in advance and is subject to a surcharge. (Guaranteed 3-week turnaround = +15%; guaranteed 2-week turnaround = +25%; guaranteed 1-week turnaround = +35%)
