After spending a wonderful night at the Mason Guest House (thank you so much Willie!), I scooted around my old transplant stomping grounds, Emory. I went to visit the transplant clinic in Emory and saw Drs. Larson and Pearson for the first time in quite a while. They both did my transplant in 1999. They remembered me and were excited to see my scooter I brought up to the floor. Emory sure has changed since then!
Speaking of change, I went across the street to visit CHOA transplant clinic. I’ve been visiting the transplant floor at CHOA for years. It’s all changed over just over the course of the trip! First, I was sent next door to another building. Then I was sent to the newest building on North Druid Hills. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see anyone, but I did run into an old friend. Brain has a kidney/pancreas transplant and I’ve known him for years through various transplant events.
Brian let me park the scooter at the new building and Driver came and picked me up. I am home tonight! Sleeping in my own bed. Tomorrow I will head back to the scooter and complete Stage One. New CHOA building to Piedmont, where I have a media event at 1pm (and doctor appointment just before) to home for at total of 24 miles for my final day of my first stage.
