Monday update from SLC

So Will got up very, very early for him. We were at the kidney office by 9:00 this morning. We went into the conference room with four other families wanting transplants. We had a slide presentation of all the stuff that goes on for transplant. We had a good idea already because we have been researching for a few weeks. After a couple of hours, we visited with the financial planner for half an hour, then we visited with dietitian to explain the diet needed after transplant. That took another 30 minutes. Then we visited with the pharmacist for transplant patients. We were old friends so she didn't need that much time with us. Will was a little tired so he left about 10:30, went back to the hotel and took a nap. I stayed and got all the information for him. I think Will planned that to happen that way. After a break from noon to one, we went back to meet with the actual surgeon. They did a check up and asked a whole bunch of questions. I think they were a little nervous around Will, I wonder why that is?

Then we came back for a rest to the hotel. We went to Sizzler and Will ate two baked potatoes and a plate of shrimp soaked in butter. Where does he put it? He decided he wanted to go to the movies. He wanted to see if he would be able to see the movie with his vision. Well, we sat in the front (my neck is still stiff) and he was able to watch "The Night at the Museum" There just isn't anything he can't do.

So tomorrow we have to be back to the hospital for tests by 8:00 am. They just don't know how upset this makes Will. He doesn't think the world should start until 10ish or so. So we meet with another dr. and Will will get about five tests done. He will talk with the social worker and somebody else, I forget who. But they did tell us that we probably won't know if he's accepted into the program for about two weeks. I don't know why........... We are going to pop in and visit with Dr. Cahill, Tauni and Kelly after all the tests are done. They just want to see how Will's doing, it's not an official visit. Then we are going home.

So that's our day and our planned tomorrow. Thanks for the continued prayers for our traveling and tests.
