The office is fine, but Eriko wasn't so fortunate
I doubt that anyone in the Houston area wasn't effected in some way by Harvey. The scope of this disaster is mind-boggling. Our office is open and seeing patients with no access issues. Unfortunately Eriko and my parents both had their houses flood, and they remain flooded as of this time. It was heart warming to see how much the people of Houston and surrounding communities have pulled together to help one another, and that effort continues. It was good to see that the main lanes of the West Sam Houston Tollway were pumped out overnight, but it is still closed. My guess is that it will reopen by this coming Monday, which will provide a critical link between I-10 and Westheimer. As of now, water still covers most of the area from Memorial Drive to Westheimer, and, of course, many people in that area still have water in their homes. Our prayers go out to all of you effected by the flood. It will take time, but we will recover.
