More Testing…

It’s December 29, 2016 and I am back in Chicago for more testing and appointments.  Getting to the actual stem cell transplant is a little like getting a security clearance.  I need to be approved at multiple stages and by multiple doctors in order to continue on.  Today is Dr. Ben Freed, my cardiologist here at Northwestern.  After getting an x-ray and twenty test tubes of blood drawn this morning (required two venipunctures) I met with Dr. Freed to have my heart checked once more to ensure it is healthy enough to go through this.  It is, and I’m a go for next week.
