Shands visit

My FEV1 (lung function) is down to 1.19 this morning. I had a call from Wendy, the transplant coordinator, and the doctor’s have moved up my clinic visit to this Wednesday instead of next week. So Harriet and I will be going to Shands tomorrow morning for the regular tests – blood, X-ray, breathing, and the six minute walk, and meeting with doctor Baz to talk about what’s next. The Cyclosporine may arrive by then and we could also start that treatment. If not, we’ll have go back sometime later this week when it does.


I used the portable oxygen to take Bernie for three shorter walks today. However, he’s looking at me with that cocked head. I think he know something’s up. Smart cookie, that Bernie.
