Blogging from Vandy, Day 2

Today was a pretty easy one, well, for me at least.

We spent the morning in the Heart and Vascular Institute where Jay had an EKG, and echocardiogram, and a Thallium Stress Test. Most of the stress test required waiting, so I wrote a paper for school and read, and then one of my best friends ever came up to visit us. Ashley and I caught up for awhile, and then he prayed before we all went our separate ways. It was a pretty low-key morning, and we topped it off with a visit to the Social Worker who, like many of the other interviewers, didn’t have too much to say that we didn’t already know.

We went back to my dad’s house and Jay finally ate while I went for a run. Then we put on our goin’ out clothes and joined our friends Jason and Mary for an epic dinner at Sunset Grill. We enjoyed three hours worth of dining and visiting, and then continued at their house. It was a long night, but well worth the time it took to laugh and enjoy.

The kids called during dinner. My undeservedly amazing friends took care of them tonight during church and Grandpa picked them up afterwards. It’s impossible to overstate how grateful I am for my church family…I had a few moments of (what I consider to be) normal parental anxiety because this afternoon involved a lot of moving parts on the homefront, but then that went away. My village takes care of my people in ways that humble me and make me wonder what I did to deserve being surrounded my such amazing friends.

Tomorrow seems pretty easy as well. An interview with the tranplant surgeon and an Endoscopy for Jay.
