    Well, it appears as though I will be headed back stateside, after all these years of living abroad. My medical issues were not exactly what I originally thought. Well, not completely. It is a bit more severe. As soon as I can make arrangements to fly back, I will be headed to Oregon, Minnesota, or Georgia. Not sure where yet, at this point. It depends on where I can get the best medical treatment for my problem.

    Thanks to my fellow monkeys for everything, the thoughts, the prayers, and the messages. Truly appreciated.

    Best part of the update is you are still sucking air and post the update ;)

    Might consider the Peoples Republic of Illinois, the State totally sucks but there is Carle Foundation Hospital in Champ/Urbana and it has some of the best Doctors and Specialist around.

    OryGun is the Peoples Republik Of the Wet Coast, but we have (OHSU) Oregon Health Sciences University Medical Center, if you got a nasty, there is NO place Better.PERIOD! The oncology dept. is in a class of it's own, and the Cardio center has no equal!
    Any monkey in OryGun will tell you they are the very best!

    I cannot think of what to say without sounding like a Hallmark card. I am glad you are coming home to get the medical treatment you need. Remember, your Monkey family & friends are always here, sending you well wishes and some prayers.

    At least you've got a direction and are taking steps to control and command your health. Where ever you decide is best for you keep us posted as to your progress. Oh, welcome back to the good old USA.

    I know Mayo is up in Minnesota (BIL works there), if you end up there you will likely be in very good hands. Hope all goes well. You're in our prayers.

    Zimmy Wait, I'm not ready!

    I work at UT Southwestern. They're damned good at what they do but don't do everything. If you end up in Dallas I can vet your docs and get you the nicer nurses.

    Since your Asian family is used to primitive living, they will be welcome in my RV which is at least has climate control (and is comfy) for the duration.

    The Mayo in Minn is apt to be the top shelf place in CONUS. There are others including in Boston and Philly that I know of.
