@Lauren and @Eric in Tulsa

in a moment look at the top menu, select the envelope and there will be a private HP mail message from me to get your email addresses for the invite.  Invites are sent 15 mins before the meeting.  It will be great to see you both.

How much time should I set aside for this chat session? We usually leave for church at 11:15 your time which means I have to plan getting ready before that.

You can leave the chat anytime.  It opens at 9 for chit chat and starts at 9:15 with introductions.  Then each month is different depending on who participates and what topics are popular at the moment.  Most chats last about 1.5 hours.  We wrap up by 2 hours at the latest now.

Yup, I’m in. Looking forward to it! I’ll fill you in on my plans to visit UNC-Chapel Hill late next month.

Hi Mary Beth.

Yes, I’m looking forward to it. In the meantime,  I’d like to ask if you have any hotel recommendations or any other advice about staying in Chapel Hill.

FYI, Joyce Thomas has set up a series of appointments for me with Adrienne Pearson, who has a PhD in audiology and seems to be one of the leading audiology folks at UNC. So I’m feeling pretty comfortable about that. She and Joyce figure we’ll need three or four appointments over 10 weeks to create an effective map for my right-side CI. You can’t really predict these things, of course, so it could take longer or shorter, either of which is OK with me.  Ten weeks sounds like a long time, but I’ve spent longer in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Afghanistan and a bunch of other places a lot less pleasant than North Carolina, so it should be easy.

Joyce also booked a couple of appointments for me with Dr. Matt Dedmon, who seems to be the leading Otolaryngologist at UNC since  Dr. Pillsbury retired a short while ago. We’ll see if he has any ideas about the declining hearing in my “good” left ear. I’m sure he’ll also work closely with Adrienne on my CI issues, as well. Dr. Dedmon has a PhD from Harvard and worked at MEEI previously, so it seems like I’m pretty well-educated hands! 

So, I’m working out the logistics now. Tokyo to Chicago to Chapel Hill; 16 hours or so, including layover. The folks at MedStay are helping me book a hotel in Chapel Hill. Do you happen to remember where you stayed when you visited Chapel Hill? Any lodging recommendations? It seems like Chapel Hill has a nice little walking downtown area near the UNC campus, so I’m hoping we can book a place there. Let me know if you have any ideas. I’ll ask Shiyi if she has any ideas, as well, since she lives just down the road. Otherwise, I’ll look forward to seeing you and the gang on Sunday!

Best,
Kirk
