Default Surgery with Dr. Waner and TLC filming the surgery

Just wanted to update every on on my surgery with Dr. Waner. It is on time on Feb 17th. Today Waner's office called to tell me that Dr. Berenstein can see me on the 15th, but Kuppersmith will be out of town. So it sounds like I will be flying into NYC earlier the planned. It will be interesting if TLC will find any interest in adding my eye problem with the story since it is so rare.

I will find out more tomorrow.

Hank

An update for everyone,

My surgery with Dr. Waner on the 17th is still on track, I also have a appointment with Dr. Berenstein (Waners Nuer) on the 14th. TLC is filming my appointment with Berenstein on top of my surgery with Waner. TLC is coming out to my house on the 11th to do a interview.

Get this, The foundations that I am active in are going to be mentioned in my story as a hobby of mine. Which is true I spend enough time on them to consider it a volenteering hobby.

Update on TLC,

Well Target Corp told the producer that they do not allow cameras in there back room where I work. So the clip of me got shut down, also the clip of me at the gym is not going to happen either because 24 hour fitness took to long to get back to me on the idea. Owe well maybe next time they come out here I will have better luck. My interview is still on for tomorrow at my apartment.
The clip with Dr. Berenstein is on hold, they could not get thru to him to ok it, but if he uses the 3D MRI on the 17th they want to cover that. They will have to do his interview later down the road aswell.

Well TLC was here and now have gone. It went well, and I think the producer and camrea guy learned something today.

In my interview I mentioned all the sites that I have been active in. Yes Glenda and Corinne, your sites as well.
I even got the sites address for VBF in there. I did allot of repeating of the same info about what I do on these sites and how I give my advice.

They also got me watering my plants, lifting weights, working on my bike, and typing a message on the interent.

Valerie,

TLC will not show until all of my surgeries are over, and that will be over a year or so. They want to see the before and after pictures.
