Don’t worry it isn’t happening anytime soon. But today was another piece of preparatory work up for a kidney transplant. It was an electrocardiogram. I have another piece to go for sometime soon, a radioactive dye stress test. These will be followed with some kind of interview to be held down in the big smoke, Toronto, or so I assume. This workup is repeated annually to ensure that when a donor kidney is available and when my name is at the top of the waiting list, I am actually ready and still healthy enough to have the transplant with a good chance of success. I have been told the waiting time in Ontario for a cadaverous kidney is eight years.
