Where I stayed
Greenville Hotel

Monday, July 26, 2010

After sitting on the flight leaving Minneapolis, while they fixed smoke detectors for an hour, we finally left and flew to Amsterdam.  We changed flights to Bulgarian Air and arrived in Sofia around 2:30pm.  We were picked up at the airport by Vlade, who works for Geia Tours and drove us to the hotel.  We checked in and Vlade came back with info for treatment tomorrow.  The hotel is across the street from the hospital.  Most everybody speaks some English.  I have to be there at 10am tomorrow and procedures will be performed with the possibility of treatment same day.
We met some folks at the hotel who have had the procedure (from Florida) and one from Nipawin who is scheduled for tomorrow.  The stories they told describing other folks post procedure were incredible.  Remind myself that any positive change will be worth it.
We're going to need to get some rest and at the same time try and see a little bit of Sofia.  So far we're good but both slightly jet lagged. 
   Not freaking out ...yet...   No reward without risk...
More to come

Remember to sleep, you freak! Glad to hear you've arrived in one piece and aren't in jail yet. Vlade's last name isn't "Impaler" is it?
