Weeks delay

So the cardiologist called this morning. Make that A cardiologist - the doc Dave usually sees was not available for some reason. The nurse started out saying things were fine to proceed with the surgery, and was going on to say she'd contact the orthopedist's office to tell them that when she paused. And then said -- No, no, sorry about that, the doctor has changed his mind. You need to come in for tests.

So, get in line to see the cardiologist, and then back in line to schedule surgery -- which has never been a speedy process in our experience. Assuming that all these tests don't rule out the surgery altogether? Dang, hadn't thought of that - is that a possibility? We still don't know what it was in the EKG that has everyone concerned.

It will be your job to be Dave's advocate; every patient needs one to ask the questions and press for answers. Good luck to both of you.

LOL Birdie -- so true. It was like pulling teeth today.
