Thursday May 21 12:00pm meet with Dietitian 1:00pm 6 minute walk Anytime PRA level
I thought today would be better but it was very tiring. Maybe everything is catching up with me.
We met with two students at noon who asked me many questions about the foods that I eat. (I had to fill out a form which listed all kinds of foods and the frequency that I consume them) I was also weighed and measured so my BMI could be calculated.
The Dietitian came in and spoke very briefly with us. She was pleased that I'm only 5 lbs away from the BMI that would allow transplant. She told me to continue my Weight Watcher's .
My next appointment was the Six Minute Walk. We met with the Physiotherapist in the treadmill room. She got my history then I did the walk. I had to stop briefly for a rest at one point but I think if she had told me during the walk how much time was left (at different intervals) I would have kept going as I only walked a few more steps when she said "Your done". She wants me to come back next Tuesday and do another.
Tomorrow will be a long day as this test can take 5 - 6 hours (with a break in between procedures). I'm very glad we decided to stay downtown but I will be so glad to get home tomorrow.
