Hi Courtney & Kurt,
I am very pleased to hear you have obtained the services of a great physician. We set out today on my procedure. After a 4 hour drive we arrived in Laguna Beach tonite, er, sorry but I think might be nicer than Austin, though I do like Austin, but what our Dr. told us is that we should stay 10 days. Tomorrow we go though pre-op - EKG, blood work, chest Xray, meet with a counselor, meet the medical staff, (we actually have lunch with the surgeon and staff) and post op preparation. Then I don't eat the next day and Friday the daVinci is done. He said that we could go back to Vegas for the cath removal, but that he preferred that we stay close. As you know the next important date is the surgical pathology results. My Dr W. is very much in touch with us and will be providing us that result in person. God bless you guys and lot's of love. I'll post my results as soon as I have them.
PS: One of my favorite spots in Austin is at Town Lake where the statue of Sevie Ray Vaughn is. As a musician, he was one my greatest influences. Austin is one of the best blues scenes in the country. I know Kurt will be a bit sore but if you get the chance, that's a great way to spend some time. Track down Austin City Limits et al.
I'll be just hangin out at my Sisters house in LB, most of my family is here, and I've seen the beaches plenty of times.
Tony & Ruth
