Thanks Dawg.
Here's the link, starting on page 3.
China Town- SF..?

How's your son doing?
I've heard chantix can have some weird effects on people. My pharmacist told me he saw considerable changes in mood behaviors in people that he's known for years that were prescribed that. Hopefully an alternative will help you. Glad the Pie King is better and stays that way.

My sons looking forward to this surgery. The surgeon told us that if it goes as well as he's expecting that my son will have a good chance of recovering some of his eyesight. We've taken him to a lot of specialist all over this state. UCSF/ Stanford, you name it we've been there since he was an infant. This Dr. has been the only one to tell us we as parents did the right things at the right times. Had we when he was 8mo, old handed him over for cataract surgery (They were really pushing us into it ) we today wouldn't have been having this conversation. With all the advance technology from yesterday to today we would have ruined any chance of his having sight in that eye.

So our last trip wasn't a complete bust. I'm steering clear of China Town next time.
I think Embassy will keep me as far away from that generator as possible.. LOL!

Munky.

I did fine on the Chantix...but three months was not enough and neither was six. I ended up taking it for 9 months and cut back on it slowly...finally worked. Shrek is back to taking it, it makes him mean, nasty mean sometimes...I hope it works for him this time.

I've got my fingers and toes crossed for the surgery and success. I wish your boy, "Good Luck."

Good Luck Or Karma?

My sons surgery date has been set. Sorry I can't mention day or time. It's going to be soon.
I'm so thankful for the Surgery Coordinator that hospital has. If it wasn't for her working with me, understanding the problems we had to S.F on our last trip. This trip is going to be completely different. They have a contract with a local Hotel in Japan Town. Patients and parents get a special rate. She recommended Hotel Kabuki for us. It's very quiet, clean and the hospitals close by. It's located right in the heart of Japan Town. So is the shopping! ;) Japantown San Francisco Hotel | Hotel Kabuki | Luxury Hotel Japan Town

Remember the Manager @Embassy? Well we set up the time. Let him know. He was transferring to another hotel within the next week. He had mentioned Japan Town. Didn't say what hotel he's be working at. But for Embasssy's sake to make it right he booked us the days we needed for $99.00 a night. I doubt it would have been that same room. Guess where he transferred to? Hotel Kabuki. You could have knocked me over with a feather. Him to when he found out about the hospitals contract.

We canceled our reservations @ Embassy. My husband talked with the Manager at Hotel Kabuki. He said that he would see what he could do for us and he'd call us back. What they have as a contract with the hospital is the Family Suite.It's a nice looking suite.

This morning we got our confirmation email from him. He had changed our room from the Family Suit, moved us up to the Executive Sauna Room. Just a smidgen over $100.00. I'm really alright about that! Japantown Accommodations and Suites | Hotel Kabuki | Asian Inspired SF

I hear Japan Town is much more civilized. Clean less raunchy then China Town is.
People aren't as rude. My son just loves Japanese food anyways, especially Tonkatsu.

So it's looking like this trip will be less stressful on all of us. Looking forward to it.
Not sure if the manager is looking forward to meeting me. But I'm making him up a peace offering gift basket anyways. I feel kind of bad about that email I sent off.

Munky.

Munky, I'm glad it's working out! If it doesn't, please b*tch like crazy! Sure hope you can finally relax, and that your boy gets the care he needs!

Ha!

You cracked me up with that one! I can just see the Docs face!

My doc is the oppisite. I never have anything to tell him about, so when I do call and ask for something like pain pills, he knows I must be hurting like crazy and gives me ones that are too strong for me. I have to cut them into quarters and only take one quarter pill, in twice the time it says.

Ever see the Deer in the headlight look? ~@@~ WHA!!!!???

I was being a smarty pants.. " I'll do it if I really have to!" Give me what I want and I'll go away. See how life is so simple?.. Moron! LOL!!!

Luckily now I have a decent Dr like you. I think if they know you as an individual patient. Requests like that with close follow ups. It's usually not a problem.

I did get the sleeping pill, I'm not crazy about it. Gives me amnesia for the last hour or two of each night...scary. I've been hiding my car keys from myself.

Sounds like it's working as intended. Just kidding.. Your Dr. needs to know about that. For me I'd like to forget some days ever happened. It took Dr #2 to get it right for me. I still keep a bell hanging on my front door that's loud enough to wake me up if I'm sleepwalking. I always try leaving the house.
