Just heard from Nina again... She says to fly down as originally planned and if necessary they'll put the 3 or 4 of us flying into San Diego tomorrow morning up in a hotel in San Diego. The Hotel Lucerne where Dr. Aceve's patients stay has no power and the hospital is using its' generator...they are possibly thinking of moving the surgeries to another hospital. She said when necessary she would help us to make flight change reservations from down there...to not worry about that now. Power is out in the entire city and she's hopeful it will be back on overnight.

Going to bed...gotta get up at 4:00 a.m. This should be an adventure! Ruth

When I went for my surgery I was more worried about earthquakes than I was the surgery itself. The situation sounds grave from the online news...infrastructure (highways) blocked due to landslides, and a lot of damage around Mexicali. If I had surgery planned this week, I would postpone it...they are bound to be busy taking care of emergencies at the hospital, and it may be dangerous to travel on the roads. There are and will continue to be lots of after shocks in the area. It does not sound like a safe place to go right now to me. Just my opinion.
