Hey there, Glad you liked the post. I also had IV nutrition at one point and also like you, more than one transplant. I was so weak that I couldn’t get out of bed, but now I run around like a crazy person. Obviously I don’t know your situation, but I hope you don’t give up on wanting to go back to your activities. Just take baby steps. If you copy…

Good advice. I went through the same drill: mandatory Medicare for me at 62 (also did standard with Medi-Gap and separate drug plan) and having to get wife standard coverage.

@bobtalisker When I first saw that room and everyone all masked up, it struck fear into my heart as well. Plus the waiting room was like a scene from the Star Wars cantina, it was awful. It turned out, though, as it often does, that my assumptions were wrong and it was pretty not bad. 🙂 Keep on keepin’ on, DPM
