Ugh...the waiting.

Sunday, November 03, 2013

So I gained this week. No big surprise here. Even though I have been walking. I haven't been doing the distances I normally do. I also indulged in junk food yesterday. I knew the scale wouldn't be pretty this week. I'm sort of ok with it.

Even though today, Sunday, is usually a 'goof-off' day for me, I went for a quick walk this morning. I also didn't go shopping, so abstained from getting, and eating, the junk food I normally do. This is just a bump in the road!

I'm only working one day this coming week, so I have lots of days to exercise and maybe even cook (which I hate). Basically, I'll be waiting for a phone call from UCSF.

I have to go down there for the rest of my evaluation to be a donor. I have to see the nephrologist, the surgeon and a psychologist (or is it a psychiatrist; not sure). I also have to have the CT angiogram of my kidneys. I let them know mid-week, last week, that I was ready to get this scheduled, and it seems like I've been getting the runaround. The Rn coordinator told me to let her admin assistant know, which I did, and she told me that she'd let the RN coordinator know! That was Wednesday/Thursday of last week. I don't want to be a pest, so I'll wait. Patience isn't one of my strong suits! We'll see how long I hold out before I email them again!

I hope you all have a great week!

    You do have to keep checking back - the coordinators usually have a lot going on both pre and post patients. Mine told me no problem to go ahead and call as "the squeaky wheel gets the grease"! Good luck!
