    Hey All,  I should have sent this out earlier.  As many of you know I will be having my AUS activated on Monday Oct 6th at UT Southwestern in Dallas.  I talked to GENE tonight and me mentioned another HW Brother that would like to meet with us.  So, I told him I would post this.  If anyone is interested in meeting myself, GENE, and JETGUY we will be at the Embassy Suites @ 2727 Stemmons Freeway in Dallas, TX at 10:00 a.m.  If anyone is interested in meeting guys that have had either the AUS or IPP please come and see us.
    I will also be there Sunday evening so if anyone would like to meet then that would be fine also. My Cell Phone is 405-476-3726.  Just give me a call and we'll see what we can arange.
 
    Thanks for being a Great Bunch of Folks,
    KW

Hi KW, I just left a message on your other post. Good luck on Monday! We will be eager to hear how it goes. I know you are excited. Pete will be getting his activation on Oct 28. He is ready after two years of total incontinence. Too bad we aren't in Texas, or we would come and meet with you guys! Di
