For this initial round of testing, I have completed them except the PAP smear. The doctor's office is contacting the transplant clinic to ask if I need a full physical exam or a pre-surgery exam. Since this is the beginning of the transplant process, I will be having an intensive exam of all the organs in my body as the process continues. A pre-surgery exam should be good enough for now. Really.
Today should be interesting. I have to dig up birth certificates for both William and me for the trust administers. I have to find his baby book because I know there is one there then I have to get into the safe deposit box for mine. Then, to the rehab class! This evening, there will be an Irish Fiddling rehearsal. A full day.
