Less than a week now till Rory's surgery! We had her surgical consultation with Dr. Rekate this morning & I feel SO MUCH BETTER after meeting & talking to him! No more doubts - we chose wisely! Looks like we will be here for at least one week after the surgery. We could use some more donations in order to afford tickets home - please help out if you are able to
Tomorrow marks one month out from Rory's surgery :-( She has not been feeling well at all so we are anxious to get this over with. Donations are still rolling in - thank you, thank you to all our sponsors! Thanks to a VERY generous donation of tickets, we get to see the Broadway production of Lion King before the surgery, & take a bus/boat tour of New York & the harbor - so the trip won't be all bad! Last visit to her local doctor this week to get the all-clear, then she starts weaning off all the pain medication & supplements. It's going to be a long month!
Just a quick update - thanks to donations on this site & a private donor, I was able to buy our airline tickets out to New York! One way - no return tickets because I don't know how long we'll have to stay out there. I also got our hotel reservations - more expensive than I hoped but less than I feared, so we'll make it work somehow. The most expensive part is renting a car :-( but I'm looking for ways to cut that cost without inconveniencing us too much. A little over 8 weeks out from the surgery - I'm starting to get things checked off my to-do list in preparation. Nervous but hopeful that it helps her.
