Trying to keep up with the humor. It was about 4 months ago when I was told I would need a valve replacement. I'm currently living and working in Buffalo New York as a part time art teacher/ server at a country club.
I had a hard time figure out when to do my surgery and where to do it. Being from Long Island of course my family wanted me there. So after much thought I decided to do it back home and set the date for October 1st, 2012.
I just cannot believe the day is coming up so fast! However I am really happy with my choice of going out west this past summer working at a summer came near lake tahoe, it was the perfect distraction! So beautiful. I think when I am on the table, i'll just think of the mountains and that will get me through.
As for now I'm trying to work as much as I can before I'm disabled and tying up loose ends here in Buffalo before my trip back home next Tuesday!
