I’m in the final packing now. Not too much to take. I plan to augment my wardrobe with some shopping in Los Angeles.
The surgery is scheduled for the early morning on January 9, 2008. The surgeon is Jose N. Fayad, M.D. of House Ear Institute (Wikpedia link) and the surgery will be done under a local anesthetic at the St. Vincent Medical Center across the street from the House Institute.
Stay tuned for updates on the surgery and results as soon as I can post them.
