Will may be on the way to the hospital today
or maybe not. Apparently he talked with the doctor's office yesterday -- to the nurse coordinator who he really doesn't like (well, he doesn't get along well with many of them, but this one really drives him crazy). He described his symptoms which are more extensive than he had shared with me previously (short of breath, etc.). He wants a normal CF/transplant workup (PFTs, sputum sample, blood work, xray). She advised going to the emergency room because Will's regular doc is on vacation and. . .I'm not sure. I guess the hospital is not capable of doing these tests on an outpatient basis unless it's through the regularly scheduled CF clinic? Maybe she thinks he is really, really sick. Maybe he is really, really sick. I can't figure it out. Will says, well, "maybe I'll go and maybe I won't -- I haven't decided yet." So, I guess we wait and see.
