What no tea!

So mini emergency at our house this morning

The tea kettle is broken

I repeat no hot water for my tea

I'm S and I'm a tea addict

I admit it freely. I am even a tea snob, I bring my own teabags with me to restaurants so I can have a good cuppa

Hubbie is off to the rescue picking up an electric kettle on way home.

LOL, on the tea thing...My inlaws have several kettles, mostly copper I think. They're fav is Earl Grey...I'm so glad they've started with more green teas though.

Anyhow, yes, I finally contacted the secretary for the Dr. you recommened. They kind of flustered a bit in getting references for adult surgical consults...cause they're a Pediatric clinic...So they were able to give me names of Ped docs...but I've had no luck yet finding a surgeon who will do a partial (or my prefered near-total) splenectomy on an adult. Our surgeon here said he would put the referal request in for UCLA. I know that Germany and other European countries have been doing NTS or partials for several years now as routine...but here in the US I'm begining to think it's still "experimental" only. So I need to figure out if it's only at hospitals participating in some sort of clinical trial...or what. So I need to call around to a few more places soon and keep working my questions till I find what I'm looking for. It's not likely it will just fall into my lap, as it would seem. Wouldn't that be nice.
