An update on my high idle problem . . . after about 1.5 - 2 weeks my idle is now starting to return to normal. The RPMs are coming down quicker and coming down to 750. It appears to take time to return to normal and it is running much better now. I probably didn't need to replace my AIC valve . . . oh well.

I also had to replace my throttle cable this weekend ?!?!?! I've never heard of a throttle cable going bad. Mine frayed between the gas peddle and the firewall and wouldn't allow the throttle to return to idle. I limped it home, got the part (dealer part only $107) and replaced it in about 5 minutes. Back on the road.
