This and That

5/29/2011 ~

I’m starting to mentally prepare myself for my annual visit to my transplant center for my yearly heart cath, biopsy and all of the other tests that they throw in for good measure. All heart transplant patients go through this in one form or another. It’s always a LONG day. The testing day is Tuesday, the day after the holiday. So far, I am only a little nervous, but I’m sure it will build. It always does. Blood pressures don’t lie.

So, this past week I’ve been trying to do some of the projects that require some lifting, because those will be out of the question for a few days following the cath.

I’ve also finished writing my “thank you” for my donor family, which will go along with me to the clinic on Tuesday, to be passed along through the channels. It’s short, but meaningful to me. I just hope these thank you cause no additional pain to my donor family. (Thanks DM for your help, you are AWESOME!)

It’s a beautiful day here, time to go out and enjoy it.

A quote for today ~ “Choose to inhale. Do not breathe simply to exist.”
