One more trip down.

It's now Feb. 2009, and I'm doing this all by myself. The girls might need a heart when they see this.
I had a very interesting Dr. apt. on the 12th. My sister Ann went with me this time, (By the time I'm through with this wait, I will probley have gone through both sisters, all sister-in-laws, plus nieces and a few nephews). Dad goes whenever he can. Anyway the results this time was very good. My heart has not deteriorated at all since the last apt. in Sept. Don't get to excited because it didn't get any better either. During the Heart Cath they didn't need to use nitro to bring the pressure down. Every other visit it has taken up to two nitro.
Now here comes the interesting part. The cath was done at 9:00am, and clinic is at 1:00pm.
(The hickie on my neck shows I made it through the 18 or 19 cath o.k. ) During the cath one of my favorite Transplant coordinator came in and was telling me how I was there main subject the last few meetings. I was going down hill faster then they thought. Sooooooooooo I was telling Ann durning lunch what she thought about that. We both came to the same thought that I was getting close to the top of the list. Clinic itself takes about 1 hour. I see the Transplant Team one at a time, then all together.
Well guess what? It wasn't my heart they were worried about. They want me to see a phyic
They told me that the waiting is the worst part of the whole transplant process. I guess they don't think my family is a big enough support group. Needless to say I left upset. I thought my turn was coming. They want me to go to therapy. Anyway you look at it life is a chanlenge. So please keep me in your prayers. "All good things come to those who wait" All those who read this. Help me get thru this. Lots of Love, Grandma J
