About every four month Ashley and I make a trip to Pittsburgh. The point of Pittsburgh-week is a check-up with her transplant team. It’s actually something I look forward to quite a bit even though there’s always that concern that something’s wrong, like really wrong. And also the part in which we’re basically hanging out in a hospital all day.1
But overall I enjoy it. My goal over the next few days will be to get you to understand a couple of things. Firstly, I know some of you, O Semi-Constant Readers, are more than familiar with CF/Tx procedures. But for the rest of you I’m hoping to provide a glimpse of what these check-ups are like. I’m not talking like Christiane Amapour type reporting, more like Anderson Cooper. Without all the crying.
- Though Ashley is quite the connoisseur of hospital cafeterias, and UPMC’s is no slouch.
