Cat - Next week!! See, the time has gone by fast.
Once you get oriented to your surroundings, the shuttle system will work just fine for you. Don't forget there are shuttle golf carts at the hospital to take you between buildings.
We will be waiting to hear from you.

Well, I am getting all my final things together so we can fly out tomorrow to San Jose. Cat's being feed and all the important stuff. I think I am stress eating!! My husband is a nervous wreck so I don't have to time to be.

Wow, it is really getting close.
