Don't want to bring anyone down, or go on too much about what's happening to me, but I thought some of you might care to hear a minor update.
The medical community in the Daytona Beach area leaves a lot to be desired. There are no outstanding vascular surgeons in the entire county. And none at all that accept our insurance, which was absolutely golden in Texas.
We have found a team of surgeons in a small city called St. Augustine, about 50 miles from us, that has agreed to take my case. We see them for the first time this coming Wednesday. I expect, based on past experience, to be in surgery shortly after they see me. Probably in as soon as a week.
After that, I'm down for a month. I hope to feel much better after healing from the surgery. Once I feel even remotely human, I'll update everyone again. But, until then, this is probably my last journal entry for a couple of months.
