Leaving On A Jet Plane

We will be out of town for the week and will not likely have access to a computer so I wanted to wish you well before I go. We are going to New York for a follow-up visit with the doctors responsible for my wife's brain surgery. We anticipate good news but you never know until you actually get there. This will be the first time our kids have flown, their first time outside the Central Time Zone and their first time sleeping in a hotel. Since we will be gone to until Saturday and we only have to spend one day at the clinic, we have planned a fair amount of sight seeing as well. We already have our tickets for the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty which the kids are REALLY excited about. We also plan to spend some time in Central Park, FAO Schwarz and in Little Italy for pizza and cannoli.

While we're gone be sure to wish my parents a happy 47th wedding anniversary, say a prayer for FrankenKrsitin's aunt who will be having surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from her kidney this week and tip a glass of Aquavit in honor of Syttende Mai commemorating the signing of the Norwegian Constitution and the successful attempt to wrestle our country away from those pesky Swedes.

Talk to you all when I get back.

I hope it all goes well, and I'll be sending good vibes from here on Long Island. I didn't know of the Chiari Institute, but it sounds like Kristin has some great specialists.
