hi, its mike again with another update.

Well I am getting out of the hospital on 6-4-09.

so far part 1 of the 2 part surgery cost is 2.8 million won that I have to pay so far. The total bill w/o insurance is 5.8 million. I hope that this clarifies some confusion about what is going on.

A few of you have asked what can they do when I get back home, please get me some wet dog food for Soju, please make sure I have enough dry food for her also. I will be on a strict diet for the next 6-8 weeks until round 2 of the surgery. So please stock me up with fruits and veggies and some very simple recipes that i can eat for the next 6-8 weeks. A small amount of meat is of but, I Will try and eliminate as much of it as i can for my diet. I have to be at 120 kg for the surgery. I will be weighed in a few days and I will list that also.

Round 2 is when they do the biopsy and then they do surgery on the tumor. Part one has been a complete success, its the part 2 one that I am worried about.

As for an account to wire $$ to, please let me get back home and I will need someone who can translate Korean so we can list my woori bank acct info.

I am doing OK, I am on solid food and I am feeling pretty good right now.

once again thanks for all of the visits, I have really appreciated them.

I will update the status in a few days..

Mike

Hey Mike, Ben Doyle let me know that you are having issues. Wish you all the best. When you say you're going home: is that home in Daejeon or stateside?

Let me know if I can do anything. I know I'm a small distance away but let me know anyway. I'm gone June 26 for a month in China but maybe I bring something back that you really, really want.

Take care you,
Liz
