It is time for the 6 month tune up.

Tomorrow I will get up at 5:45 AM and leave the house by 6:30 AM for an appointment that does not start till 8:AM. I will probably get there early but with the whole G-20 thing going on here in the Pittsburgh area and the protesters who are protesting whatever the hell has them pissed off have already arrived I just want to get in to town and get the hell out of there as fast as I can....Do you blame me???

Well actually tomorrow will end the monthly trips in to the Burgh for Heart Catheterizations and Biopsies...This does not mean I am good to go yet, but I am getting closer. If all goes well tomorrow then I will have a biopsy and catheterization in late November....if that goes well then one late January early February and then the next one will be in March marking the 1 year point.

I don't think there will be any problems tomorrow. I have been feeling great and trying to get my exercise in although tonight I counted housework as my exercise. (cut me some slack the bedroom is up a flight of steps and the washer and dryer are down a flight of steps) I did have some water retention late last week but with 1 little 40mg Lasix tablet that has resolved it self and I am back down to the mid-180's. I am off all non-heart related medications and the ones that I do take I will take for the rest of my life.

I bowl once a week in a league and once a week with Evan. That will change next week when we begin a parent/child league on Sunday nights....then my regular league on Wednesday . I have not gone back to the YMCA yet but that will happen on Thursday right after school. My work schedule so far is great I see students on Tuesday and Friday...These are also days that I don't do the car pool thing so I can hit the Y right after my last class.. and with the weather and leaves changing who knows maybe a hike in the mountains maybe a prescription I may have to force myself to take.

The funny thing is I feel like this whole transplant thing happened a long time ago...but it has only been 6 months. Can't wait to see what the next 30-40 years has planned.
