Cross Your Fingers

Well, if all goes well, I'm going to London on Tuesday for further medical experimentation. Gonna see a Rheumatologist and an Orthopedist. That's assuming all the appointments get made in time. If they don't then my trip will get pushed back. I'm ready to do it tho. I want some answers and I want this knee scraped out already - tho that turns out to be a bigger deal than I expected. General anesthesia. Geez louise, I thought it would just be a local.

I should arrive Tuesday afternoon, get myself checked into the hotel and have the afternoon free before starting appointments the next day. In theory. I'm hoping I can sneak in a trip to see "Serenity" and maybe do a little shopping. I know I won't be gamboling about after the knee job - elevation, ice packs, that sort of thing. Maybe this means I get to ride thru the airport in one of those little carts for the first time ever. Woohoo.

I've been to London before - most recently in May 2004 - so I'm familiar with the citiy's layout, I know how to use the tube, and I know the language which will be a pleasant change.

Don't have a return date set, will all depend on how things go. So expect me to be an erratic (and probably whiny) poster in the near future.
