something called a swallow test to see if any food, liquid was getting into my lungs. answer no. this place is amazing. they order a test, they do it usually within an hour and the doctor has the results in another hour. just wow
consultation with the cardiac team. good news: there is NOTHING wrong with my heart. absolutely nothing. the problem is my lungs and it is major. i am able to use only 30% of my lung's capacity. not too good. the docs are very concerned, so tomorrow we start a course of different and unusual lung tests. which means of course that we will be here perhaps another week. but at least we will know. don't know the course of treatment until they tie in the lung problem with my rheumatism component. they seem to think they are related.
very glad we came. they all say "very unusual, very strange, very we will keep trying until we find out" for which we are very thankful.
another very early day tomorrow so to bed. thanks for all the notes and love.
and by the way through the tunnels again to another fabulous restaurant. this time we met people we have been running into all day at the testing sites.
what a place.
