Day 3 of my evaluation

Here's my line up for the today.

7-8am 2D Echo
8-9am Nuclear Stress Test
11-1pm EKG and cardiac consult
1:30-2:30 Dietary consult
2:30-3:30 Social Worker Consult
4:30-5:30. Mammogram

The tests I can handle, but I cant wait to see what the Social worker has to say. The book says its their job to 1) Help understand the transplant from a realistic perspective. 2)Identify possible barriers. 3)When possible make recommendations to address identified problem areas. I'm sorta excited to meet the dietitian. I know I need to eat healthier, but its easier when someone breaks it down for me. What I can and can't eat. I know basically what I am to avoid, but maybe this will help it sink in. I have so many diet restrictions from so many doctors maybe this can clear things for me!

  1. You are so amazing to be facing this with such grace. Sending you tons of prayers.

    BTW, we miss San Antonio! We were stationed at Lackland for 5 years. I think we might miss the food the most. Rudy's, All the great Mexican food, just the variety of restaurants.
