Journal entry by Jay Michaels

I've been busy.   I've had appointments and been to hospital everyday for the last 2 1/2 weeks.  MRI's. CT scan,  Nuclear Bone scans, Ultrasounds,  3 sets of Heart testing including stress,  XRays,  etc.    Glad to have
done.   I'm still getting reports back,  but so far all seem good.   Heart ok,  Liver ok, etc etc.   

Obviously - Kidney bad.     This is goods so far.   You never know what they will find when doing deep testing.

Next step is review of everything and see if more testing needs to be done, or send my file to the "selection" committee which determine whether you are accepted on the transplant list.    So,  I'm in a waiting game.

In all,  very happy and very positive with everything so far.   Nice to have a break with no doctor's appointments.  Hospitals wear on you.   Depressing place.   Will update more later.  Jay
