    I spent much of the last year shepherding a friend through a double lung transplant at the UW Medical Center. I share others' comments about the quality of the hospital. All the Best!

    If they are waiting until April, is that a sign that they are not overly worried in the immediate future? And does that mean they are optimistic that you are getting better? We are all thinking about you.

    All good things and people need a tune up from time to time. Best wishes are winging their way north from us here in the south. Take care, dear friend.

    Thanks... so it is .... My procedure is Thursday morning (the day after arriving to Seattle). Leaving back to Alaska on Sunday. If the aftermath of the procedure is anything like last time, I don't think I'll be leaving the hotel until flying out. Do they deliver?

    Thank you, dear Katey. I really enjoyed our time together last time. Husband will come with me this time as they will open me up again and the doctor said, I must have an escort this time.

    I would love to see you if you can come visit at the hotel. Same one as last time. I will bring you a little gift from here.

    So...this time they will open the artery at the groin again and run a stent from there to the neck and from there shoot some dye into the brain. They are checking to see if the coils have compressed or if they are okay. The procedure takes two hours and it's done with local anesthesia at the entry point (sheesh...). They will also look at the two other aneurysms to see if they have grown. I don't look forward to this as I don't know how it will work and if I'll feel pain. Or if they tie me up so I can't move at all during this. After that I have to lay flat for six hours and then I can get back to the hotel.

    Amazing what modern medicine can do, but terrifying thinking about it all.

    So glad you've emerged less the worse for wear.
