    Re: Boston vs Mayo

    Ok gang here's the plan. . . we'll devide into 3 groups (tufts/mayo/cleveland) and indian leg wrestle until we have a winner. If any other centers come into the discussion, they'll have to play Twister (best out of three) with the winner.

    THW - Cleveland was one of my choices as well and an old friend just relocated & offered her home to recoop in. So its been in the running. I think there was some discussion regarding Insurance that may have moved it down a notch, but I'll re-think my choices when the time comes.

    And Pam, Dear hotel lobby, chaise reclining in support hose Pam, thanks for your help with everything. Your point is dead on - we all will have different experiences and the choice is as individual as our condition is.

    I guess I'll know more next week.
    Diagnosed @ 48
    Saw Dr. Michael Debakey @ age 5 - "He's fine, just a little noisy"
    Father to 3 boys 22, 25, 29 (all currently clear - pending genetics)
    AICD - Valentines Day '08, Spark Plug replaced 11/14
    After much research, I had a Myectomy @ Mayo for my 50th Birthday '08
    Quietly going insane . . .

        Marc.. you are sooo funny.. and I am still laughing. What a picture you paint.... Just so you know I have stopped wearing the support hose and hope to NEVER wear them again.. the Lisinopril addition gave me back MY legs and My feet. Some stumpy lady came by and picked up the old swollen feet and legs she said she needed them more then me and they looked better on her anyway. LOL

        I am happy everyone gave you enough info so you will be able to decide, make your choice.
