I like the way you think.
And thank you for keeping us posted. I am waiting those results with great agony.

Take care.

Did you tell them to call you if they have any cancellations before your scheduled date? Sometimes it works and you can get in earlier.

Well we're going to have to wait until the appointment to get the results of the scans. The nurse told us that hippa regulations wouldn't let them give the results over the phone in this case, it has to be in person.

That said, we're feeling good about things. I can't explain how we know, but we have it on pretty good authority that Courtney's scans showed significant stenosis (its good to have friends on the inside!)....I wish I had more to share right now, these next few weeks are going to be a tough wait but I'm just so thankful to have gotten Courtney to this point....with the help of some wonderful people.

I've let the IR clinic know we'll take an earlier appt if one comes open, and will definitely keep everyone updated.
