hi stewie,
i will be the senior western patient in the hospital when you arrive. Which means, you must bring me offerings, of fruit,wine..and whores. You must also kill a fellow paitent, before i can give you membership to the 'disabled hells angels' club.
have a safe trip. see you soon.

SG, he's serious - he's been waiting for the day that he'd be the senior patient for a long time and he is going to milk it!  Grin

Things I have to do to prove myself to be worthy! Hehe

I guess fruits and wine wouldn't be a problem but I'll have to negotiate the pricing with the pimp for the whores especially if I want one to accompany me to China. They're quite expensive these days!! Let me know the flavor (vanilla, chocolate, mocha) you prefer and I'll see what I can do.  Wink

Got my Visa today. 4 days of work left. Now I'm pretty much packing up. Its funny how quickly the time came. I remember just 5 weekends ago I was thinking that it's going to be a long wait but its like, days just slipped by and I'm flying to China next Tuesday. 18 hours of non-stop flight from Toronto to Beijing should be interesting.  Smiley

Hey Sg,
I've been here for about a month and a half and throughout everything, going all the way back to when I first had the idea to LL, has been somewhat of a blur. Even veterans report everything turning into fuzzy memories soon after they are done with their time here.

Bad days, good days and everything in between all go by. No matter how expanded time seems during the moments of experiencing them in retrospect I think everyone will feel the way you do right now in the end. Which is cool because what I'm doing here is "paying dues" to obtain a deeply desired goal. It's all business here for me. These aren't the memories I want stored between thoughts of family, friends and lovers. At best these will be the memories that will remind me of the strength and determination I had to accomplish something huge.

3 inches of height will have a big impact no matter what one's current height, but if you are in the 5 foot range (the most noticeable transitional range) it can totally bump you out of a height category. It can make a short person into neutral/average height person and an average height person seem relatively tall.

You're absolutely right man. Worry and fear of this surgery is pretty much the last thing on my mind right now. I'm coming to Beijing with a very positive attitude and the realization that this is it and that I'll have a completely new lifestyle once I've gained those extra inches. I'd rather live thru a few months of pain and discomfort than feel miserable about my short height my entire life.

Well put. That one sentence is what it all boiled down to for me.

Yes, i'll get some pictures tommorow, i only did 8.5cm on the legs though. I got an extra 1.75cm, either by growing or making my posture better.

SG, I want to catch up with you in Beijing next week if you don't mind. How do we identify each other? PM me your real name so that I could ask the doc/nurse if that's ok to you.
Thanks

besides food, you will need entertainment (DVD, music, internet,going out with friends if possible). Add that to the cost as well.

I don't think that $1000 is enough for six months overseas. I think that, ideally, you would want at least $500 per month to live comfortably, and $300 if you are on a tight budget.

well what did you spend your money on monthly , can you give me an idea of if extra money is nessisary.Was it stuff you needed or wanted bc you where bored .I dont understand how i will be spending money when i am in a hospital for 6 months barely able to walk.The hospital says that they have a package deal , doesnt the hospital pay for your ride to and from the airport, soap ,toothpaste, basic food,laundry,painkillers,ect.I am on a tight budget , i am pritty young most of the people here seem to be  older and have good paying jobs. I have about 20,800 after plane ticket.I am debateing to keep working or to leave asap within the next month. Your imput is great to me and is highly apprishiated. Thank you
