Everything is possible.
I don't think Pyro would have to go that far. They will be in LA the week after next, perhaps THEY can come to HIM!
I am gearing up for my first of two liver resections at MSK, which will be happening next Wednesday the 17th. We will fly out next Tuesday and stay through my follow-up appointment the 29th.
I feel more settled approaching this surgery versus the first one, which is a relief. I've been told to expect to feel worse coming out of it, as it cannot be done laparoscopically. But I know that walking all around NY during my recovery made a big difference, and that is my plan this time around. Hope it isn't too hot!!
Due to the work drama, my husband is going back and forth from NY to LA not once but TWICE during the time that I am there - a day trip two days after surgery and a few days for a shoot the week after. My sister is coming out to cover his first departure, and my mother the second. She was there for my second week of recovery last time, and it was so great to have her kicking my butt out of the apartment and out walking. We were walking 2.5 miles a day by the end of my time in NY.
My husband posted on Facebook to see if anyone wouldn't be using their apartment for the week, and we got an offer to stay with a former colleague of his, who apparently just purchased a new three bedroom condo on the Upper West Side overlooking Central Park. She sent a few pictures, OMG. We must know good people, because we got ridiculous places to stay for my last surgery, too - two other three bedrooms in amazing areas. Thank goodness she responded, because hotel rates were crazy high, especially for anything that had kitchen or laundry facilities. She has a young daughter who went through treatment at MSK. It's a testament to my husband that she offered this to him after working with him for a "hot second" (his words) many years ago, and not keeping in touch since then save Happy Birthday greetings on Facebook.
One of my coworkers texted him too, to say that our company's EC (of which I am part) would pick up the tab for our stay if we opted to rent an apartment through Airbnb or VRBO. Have to say, that offer felt amazing after the drama of my husband's crazy work situation.
Overall, feeling good and optimistic and ready to get this show on the road!!
