Don't worry Be Happy ♥♥
Good news today. IF we have not heard from our co-ordinator in Toronto by next Wednesday we are to call her. We were told by our doctor's office that there apparently is one person, awaiting final evaluation, ahead of Carl, which is good news. This of course could change at any time as anyone who becomes a greater emergency moves up in the cue, as it were . I am the optimist Carl is the practical person ..lol.. needless to say we have heated discussions.
To date he has had x-rays, CT scan, MRI, multitudinous arterial gases, 6 min walks, pulmonary function tests up the "ying yang" and an angiogram of his heart and lungs. Whew.
We are ready to head to TO. for the next phase.
Today Carl saw his cardiologist who said he see's no problem with Carl's heart coping with the stress of the transplant. The sooner we get this testing over the better. Thank God we live in Canada! This whole process has cost us nothing, zero, zip, nadda. Tommy Douglas RIP you did a wonderful thing bringing in our national health care ♥
Keep your fingers and your toes crossed. At least we know we won't hear anything over the weekend. come Monday morning we will jump every time the phone rings.
