Spinning Wheels?

Well, sometimes it feels like we are spinning our wheels at Duke Medical, but I don’t think that is the case. They are just so thorough and keep testing, testing and re-testing. Guess it is normal to get a little anxious to find out when I might get listed for the transplant.Sad smile

I have a test scheduled for this Monday, a barium swallow to check my diaphragm, and another pulmonary follow up on 4/11 with all the labs and breathing tests and everything. Outside of that I think everything has been done. So we are continuing to wait.

As far as our trip to see the kids last weekend, it was great. We had a wonderful time and got to spend the weekend with them all at our son’s house.  We had lots of fun, lots of good food and lots of hugs!

Those grandchildren of ours are growing so fast!! Wish we could slow that down a little because they are going to start outgrowing their grandparents as they get older!!

And Cheyenne and Sadie had a grand time too, visiting with the whole family including the 4 fur babies!!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi, Sherry. Glad you had a great time visiting family. Yes, the grand kids really do grow fast, don't the. I've determined that they grow faster that our own kids. My thoughts are with you as you make your way toward good health. Glad you keep us posted. My fingers are crossed that you get a transplant very soon. Have a great day.

  2. So glad you had a great visit with the kids and grands! Yes, they do grow up quickly!!
    Hang in there with Duke....things will work out!! We continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers!!

  3. Great to hear you had good family time. Try to be patient(yeah, easy for me to say huh?) with the Duke folks. They want everything to be just right I'm sure before the transplant.

  4. You have exactly the emotions I would be having. Just so anxious for something to happen. I am thrilled that your doctors are so thorough. Saying a prayer that all goes well for you on Monday, and they can get you on the transplant list very soon.
    So good to hear about the wonderful visit you had with the kids. Yes, they grow up soooooo quickly. Just love when your with them. Enjoy your weekend.

  5. I know it's hard but I am so happy your doctors are making sure everything is perfect. That will mean fewer problems later and that is definitely a good thing. And the week-end with the grands makes for a wonderful break.

  6. Those grands sure grow fast! I am sure the tests will all be fine, as you have worked so hard to make this happen:)
