What happens in Vegas...

I mentioned earlier that Phil has to go to Las Vegas later this month to help his advisor with a presentation.  I had thought about going with him, but we kind of decided against it a while ago since we weren't sure what the schedule was going to be like for my surgeries, treatments, etc.

Now that we know my surgery date and that the radioactive iodine won't be until May sometime, my calendar is WIDE open for the end of the month.  We looked at tickets and I was able to get on Phil's flights for SUPER cheap.



So I am going to Vegas.  We will only be there for one night, but we should still get to spend some time together.  We are both really excited.

This will be the first time Phil and I will be in Vegas together.  I have like 5 things I want to do on our only evening there:

1.  Bet on the Trailblazers to win and watch the game in the sports betting area.
2.  Go to a nice dinner.
3.  Watch the dancing waters at the Bellagio.
4.  Visit the Botanical Gardens at the Bellagio.
5.  Play some slots with Phil.
6.  Have drinks in a fancy bar.

Phil thinks I should gamble while we are there.  Since only 5% of all thyroid nodules are malignant and since only about 15% of all thyroid cancers are the type I have, that gives about a 0.75% that my nodules would be the kind of cancer I have.  Maybe those odds will translate to the tables for me.  :)
