Living Well with a Bad Diagnosis - Lung Disease

Physical Appointment #1

Gold Medal Day today! William has been mentioning that he would be driving down from Seattle for a visit in August. Sunday, Michael left a message on his phone to give us a call. About an hour later, we got a text that he was on his way and would arrive TODAY. Apparently, he wanted to spend a day with friends on his way down so we expect him sometime this afternoon.

Very early this morning, I am having the first of two appointments for a physical with the local doctor. All I needed was a PAP smear for the lung transplant paperwork but noooooo, it had to be a FULL PHYSICAL. Now, I go to lots specialists. All my issues are being monitored. I have tons of blood tests. Medicare would not pay just for a quick PAP smear. Today is a face to face. Next week is the actual PAP smear.

After seeing the doctor, I am rushing home to make some Scotch Eggs and a loaf of Lemon Tea Bread as special treats for William. Michael has a boys-night-out at a great restaurant this evening so William will be going along with him. A special guest!

We have no idea how long he will be with us. We will enjoy every moment!
