Pre-op testing

I’m at the Cleveland Clinic today getting my pre-op tests. It seems like a good opportunity to try out the iPhone WordPress app. I’ll try to update the entry as the day progresses.

I’m scheduled for back to back tests and consults for the whole day — 8:00 am to 3:30 pm. First thing I noticed was they have the EKG, chest x-ray, blood work set up like an assembly line. Check in and then go from station to station. Smooth and fast.

I posted too soon.  When it was time for the blood tests, things fell apart.  15 minutes in line to register and an additional 30 minute wait to have my name called.  They were busy!  After this, things went slow for the rest of the day.  Most of my time was spent waiting and going from area to area, but not enough time to get this updated.

Everything was completed by 3:30 pm and my surgery is on for 23-Dec.
