  Sinus Surgery and Rolling the Dice.
I found out yesterday that my sinus surgery is scheduled for Monday October 23. I will be going to the nearest big city Medical Center to be operated on by non-correctional doctors.

By the time you read this I will either have clearer sinuses, brain damage (one of the risks I was told this operation has), or worst case, I will be dead due to some accident while under the doctors care.

I will probably be away from here for a couple of days. I will be sure to send you a letter as soon as possible.

I need to share a bunch of emotional issues I have been dealing with on my own, which has resulted in fewer letters heading your way and is not a protest of lack of mail from you. I do need to hear from you though as you are the only mail I get these days.

I placed a call to Mom and Dad yesterday for the first time since June. I needed to confirm that there are no family medical problems with anesthesia. They are doing well I guess. There was no mention of any plans to visit me so I guess I will not see them at all this year.

They did go to the recent taping of Jeopardy at Radio City. I had sent in a request for tickets when it first appeared in the New York Times. They did not realize who sent the tickets. Cool, I was able to send a "gift" to Mom and Dad that they actually used and enjoyed.

I did proof and print the enclosed posts, and I hope it shows. I received your most recent letter today but cannot begin to comment on it at this point. So you are spending more time with your kids and doing lots of bike riding; I’m glad some things about your unemployment are on the positive aide.

Damn, I started typing at 7:30 PM and now it is 9:30 PM.

Count time... More to follow.
