BV TAKES HOLIDAY - ISTANBUL

Sorry guys I need the day off. The toxic levels of gabapentin are really hard on me. I got up at 7 and then went back to bed thereafter and just got up again. I need to work. The good news is, next Tuesday the Va will do another caudal raz on my spine thereby removing the adhesion. By Tuesday night I will be down to 400 mgs of gabapentin and by Friday I will be at zero. The back surgery failed which is why fluid continues to leak through a tear in the annulus thereby causing the adhesion. The surgery cannot be redone until November. The annulus needs at least 6 months to recover from the failed surgery.

OH, up's with Rome, Athens, and Istanbul. I wanted to go to China but have put it off because I decided that when I do China I also want to do Tibet - that makes the trip 18 days. The tour package is awesome and actually the same price as the 12 days for the Rome, Athens, Istanbul trip. I cannot imagine leaving the dogs for 18 days, so for now it will be 12 days sometime in the early Fall in Rome, Athens, and Istanbul. It is an archaeological tour which ends with Alexander the Great ruins in Turkey.

BV back on Friday.
