Day before yesterday, Zach, Nick and I went to visit Dr. Chen, the cardio thortic surgeon who was in the OR with Dr. Kanter when Nick had his last surgery. I want him to see Nick and for Nick and I to tell him how much we appreciate what he did. Dr. Chen was very humble about the situation. I gave him an autographed copy of Nick’s New Heart.
From Emory we drove to Warm Springs. We were visiting the program there to see if Zach might like to go to school there for some training. It was a nice place and seem to have a type of situation that might work for Zach. He said he liked the idea. It would give him some independence. We will start the process of entering him soon.
Yesterday, we went to Atlanta to see Dr. Abshire about Nick’s platelet count. They were up to 94,000 on Tuesday and 112,000 yesterday. Great news!!! I hope he keeps this keeps up. He is not on as many meds as he was, but a couple of them he needs to go back on sometime soon.
