My last appointment had some nice moments. I ran into a few people from an online lung transplant support group I was invited to join awhile ago. I appreciated that because I did get a few minutes to shoot the breeze in between & meet up again with people who I have been communicating with.
Some of the other respiratory & pulmonary staff are getting to know me now because they remember me from prior visits or my evaluation tests so that also helps me feel more at ease. I don’t just feel like a number within this big hospital like I did for quite awhile.
My doctor was running late so my bestie and I were out in the waiting room since there wasn’t a free room to wait in after they took my vital signs. That’s when the “not-so-nice moment” happened.
