I did that avatar just for you Mikie
Well, actually, I didn't have any pix of me save the dreaded driving licence and passport (not photogenic here), so it was about time for another one. Hopefully I will lose the 30 pounds I've put one owing to hormonal weirdness once the tumour is out.
It's just a bit spooky cos I have to go to Tampa (yup, the one in Florida) on my own to have it done. Then again, it is a much, much simpler procedure there than it would be in Canada or even New York (one surgery, about 20 minutes, with a 99%+ cure rate, as opposed to two surgeries, about 6 hours each with a 40% cure rate - and people are wondering why I'm bankrupting myself to do this? Don't worry, there will be money left over for MMU - always seem to find that
I leave Monday afternoon, surgery is Tuesday morning, back in New York on Thursday (ouch), then we'll take it from there.
Thanks for the prayers and good wishes - they are very much appreciated!
