Busy Week


This is one of the few weeks out of the year where it seems I have had NO time to actually get anything accomplished.

On Monday, we worked in the guest room that we’ve painted and I also prepared for my (tri-annual) clinical visit on Tuesday, which was to include labs, X-ray, EKG, Echo, and ultimately a heart biopsy and clinical visit to see my transplant coordinator and my cardiologist.

On Tuesday, I did have all of the above tests, and there were some lengthy waits in between various points at my transplant center. It made for a long day as I left at 5:25am (in a heavy snow) and returned home at 4:00pm.

On Wednesday, I was back at my transplant center to volunteer. Two transplants had been completed on Monday & Tuesday, which made for a total of 6 since January 1st.

yesterday, which was Thursday, we had many errands to run so we completed them and then we headed to my transplant center for the third straight day in a row, to go to my monthly heart transplant dinner. Got to see and speak with many heart recipients ….. imagine a room with 30 “hearties”, many with their spouses / significant others. I spoke for a bit with my “mentor” who is approaching ONLY his 22nd anniversary. He amazes me!!

Today, I feel like I’m getting back in the groove here. I have cleaned the hard-wood floor in the guest room and as soon as that dries, I’ll use some hard-wood “reviver” on it.

For the record ……. my biopsy came back 0R, my EF was 59%, all labs looked great, except my creatnine was “marginal” …… which means drink, drink, drink!!!

About DAP

I am a heart transplant recipient and these are my stories and thoughts. My desire is to assist others pre or post heart transplant in anyway possible. Please feel free to contact me if you have a question.
