Jay,

I think LA in December will be nice and warm. I have this noted and you are in my thoughts and prayers. I think you have a VERY good team picked there.

And for those hi jackers who got distracted on the Brampton thread within... hey I have been there too! I did some practice teaching at Oakville Trafalgar Secondary School and also within the Peel School Board District.  I remember this time of year to be cold, damp ... the sort of weather that requires at knitted toque. Yup LA is a warmer place to be ... than Brampton.  ;D

To tie the two threads together (those darn hi-jackers  ;) ) I want to comment than when I met Dr. Brackmann I could not help notice the Canadian awards on his wall... I bet even HE knows where Brampton Ontario is! ;D

So I've made a reservation at Seton House for my wife and in-laws while I get the "deluxe" accomodations at St. Vincents! :)  My question is to those who have been there...any tips for staying there? What to bring? Things of that nature? I know it's not the Hilton but for a place to crash and rest up it should suffice.  Thanks again to all who've responded!

Hi, Jay,

If you do a search on Seton (and I would suggest using "Seton" rather than "Seton Hall") at the top of the forum page, you'll find lots of postings that will provide the information you're seeking. I had my translab procedure done at House in January 2008; my husband and I stayed at Seton Hall and found it to be just fine. It's convenient to both House (right across the street) and St. Vincent's (connected by an underground tunnel ... or a very short outside walk).

Best wishes for a successful surgery! You're going to a truly amazing place; I continue to be in awe of the entire experience almost two years later.
