To Never Needing a Bob!!!

Hunter has been trying to avoid bringing it up, since I don't like discussing it,  but I now have to begin making certain decisions. We are meant to start scheduling all the tests that are required by Presbyterian in order to qualify to be on the "transplant" list. I'm putting this word in quotes because I don't like how it sounds. The quotes take away the edge a bit.  In fact,  I think I'll refer to "transplant," as Bob from now on.

So I have to run all of these tests, (which last for 6 days) meet with a bunch of doctors and attend Bob seminars! Crazy! They really try to get you in the mind set. I'm going to have to work extra hard to get out of it!!!

The idea is that my cardiologist wants me to go through the process and be listed for a Bob. If I continue to get better, I can just say no to Bob, but she is adamant about my being listed.

So even though the idea of a Bob is worse to me than the idea of swimming with sharks (I'm insanely scared of sharks,) I shall go through the process with the continued mission of never needing a Bob. I'm going to postpone the process by 6 days so that I can do a repeat echo prior with the goal of having my pressures continue to come way down this month.

Now that I've gotten Bob talk out of the way, I'm happy to say that I feel better overall! Yesterday was my first day in the Gym in a loooooong time! (I've been going to Pulmonary Therapy, but I haven't actually been to a 'gym.') I was accompanied by Hunter and Steve Martin and walked on the treadmill. It felt so great!

Now it's time for green smoothie number one and a quinoa, arugula salad!

I hope you have a wonderful, happy Saturday!!!

See you at the next.

  1. Dear Chloe,
    It was only yesterday that I learned what you've been going through. If there is anything you need please don't hesitate to ask. I'm sure you've probably heard that a million times, but seriously. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. You're a really special, strong willed person and I know you're going to get through this the best you can. Please stay strong and positive.
