This is a really bad picture of Dr. Prieto. It is from the Cleveland Clinic website. I will have to take a picture of her with Hope at our next appointment. She is a beautiful woman and a great cardiologist.
This is Dr. Kwon and it looks just like him. I have issues with Nephrology because they are the ones in Akron that basically made the decision that she would not be a good candidate for surgery. Dr. Kwon understands how I feel and has already told me that it would never come to him for that type of decision.
Once we were done there we had to drive to Shaker and see Dr. Kwon (her Nephrologist). The high winds knocked out all the power, so we got to sit in a dark waiting room for a while because we were early for the appointment. The bad part was that without power it was almost impossible to warm up her bottle. I finally talked to the cafeteria and they were able to find me some hot water. Anyway...Hope seemed to really like Dr. Kwon. She smiled and started cooing for him. His nurse was jealous! Her kidneys are the same...small and low functioning, but they are working and that is good. Her blood work was a little better than the last time she had it done which is great. She will have some more blood work done the next time she is in to see Dr. Prieto. She will have an ultrasound done when they bring her in for her next surgery.
We are really excited about the holidays, but have not done too much to get ready for them. We are blessed to have a great family and friends to enjoy the holiday season with. Without our family and friends, this past year would have been impossible to get through. Thank you to everyone that has kept our family in your thoughts and prayers and for everyone that has gone out of their way to make our lives easier...and you know who you are!
