    RolexH and Knowonder here--we are done with the testing for today. Knowonder came throught the physical and the psych exam with flying colors! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Her CT Scan went well and we are still waiting for them to be read--as soon as we hear from the doctor, we will post it!

    Knowonder here--
    If everything is good, we start again at 7am with the Arteriogram--during which they will thread a catheter through my femoral artery--that's right the one in my groin! Then they get to use an even larger needle through my side to do a liver biopsy. I then must lay perfectly still for 6 hours so my vein will clot properly during which time they will do an EKG, Echo, abdominal ultrasound and chemical stress test on my heart--yipee!

    Back to RolexH
    We have the evening to ourselves so we are going to go out and eat at a fancy restaurant (if we can find one) then EqChick will be meeting up with us later in the evening to just hang out. sara nad I are like kids, we have this room with two singlebeds.. slumber party. Unfortunatly we get to wake up to a less than pleasant day.

    Knowonder here
    Lisa is about to drive herself crazy trying to type and think at the same time--I promise we will post as soon as we hear from the doctor with the results from the CT Scan--I'm taking her to dinner while she can still walk and talk.

    More later--we love you guys.

    Knowonder -- Good luck tomorrow! I've had most of those procedures performed, and really they aren't bad at all. If you have any questions, let me know! --Jess

    A little late on the fancy dinner recommendation, but go to CANOE!!!! (in the Vinings, on West Paces Ferry Road by the river - you can get to it from 75).

    Another good choice is Blue Ridge Grill, right on West Paces Ferry and 75 (same side of the 75 that the OK Cafe is on).

    Last but not least, Kudzu Cafe is very good, if not slightly overrated.

    But every time I read the papers, that old feeling comes on;

    I am working late on a great night since I didn't have to wait until tomorrow for today's update! Go stuff yourselves silly guys, have a lot of laughs and sleep well. Knowonder, I knew I should have sent you a certificate for a Brazilian Bikini Wax [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] - I think I'm jealous as I haven't had anything near my groin in 2 years other than a saddle (and the wax technician, but that is too painful to count). OOH too much information. Anyway, praying for you both, rest up and we will all be thinking of you guys tomorrow!

    So far so good! Not only did they call us and tell us that the CT scan was "perfect" but they also said they were able to see the arteries and they were the perfect size from what they could see. This is the most exciting news I have received since my son was diagnosed. I am eleated and have choked back tears all night. I thank Knowonder or what she is about to go through tomorrow and she knows I will be RIGHT there next to her through it all.


    I am so excited we are past the CT. I know it is going to work guys! Jingle like MAD!!!

    I just looking forward to the bikini wax and the narcotic haze I'm going to be living in tomorrow! We start at 7am--Jingle jingle jingle!!!!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I promised myself I would volunteer if Jennifer does not work out! Mr. Flash said I was nuts (with lots of 4 letter word inserted). But I'm still game!

    What a blessing this BB has been, in so many ways, for you all, but also for those of us who can know and vicariously experience this incredibly selfless giving and love.

    You brought tears to my eyes. I pray for Aiden and his family--I think knowonder qualifies--several times every day. I am so hopeful for you. This would be the most perfect news.
