Mary Beth had her echocardiogram. It took the U/S tech quite a while to get good views of Mary Beth's heart, but it showed that her right heart outflow tract was markedly compromised.
Met with Pamela Valer the international patient coordinator. Turns out she is originally from Lima, Peru!
Met with Chris from the business office to pay our deductible for the insurance company.
Mary Beth had blood tests taken.
Mary Beth had a chest X-ray.
Time for an EKG!
Met with the surgeon and her nurses. Surgery is scheduled for 10:30 am tomorrow!
Got pre-op photos taken.
Whew! As a physician, I was amazed most by how 'the trains all run on time at Mayo'. At each of the appointments, we got in a line to check-in and they told us to sit in the waiting room and in every case we never had to wait more than 5 minutes before being called.
And just for fun:
Hottest Mary Beth has ever experienced.
