6 months is normal waiting period from start of disability (not application date). I think it might be based on most states having 6 months short term state disability.

Thinking the same re paying. She won't want us to do "pay her" so perhaps we'll phrase it as a gift.

I have a regular home cleaning set for next week and am dithering. She is a small business owner and has always been diligent both before and after my transplant. I'm holding off on decisions until Friday to see what has developed in my county.

@livertrex – Please stay home not only for yourself but for the protection of others. Thats my interpreatation of "Love thy neighbor".

@beckyy39 – I wonder why your testing at Mayo-Jax is taking so many more days than mine at Mayo-Phx? Maybe less appts per day?

The support and info here made the waiting easier. I haven't been on here much post-transplant but I'm trying to be more vocal so I can help others as I was helped.

@beckyy39 I’m sure they would have told you if they were banded as I had to be more cautious in diet following bandings vs when no bandings were done.

I was given pictures after each of my procedures. Not that I knew what I was looking at but it was cool to see what was happening in my body. My GI doctor (local in Tucson, not a Mayo doc) was excellent in explaining things and keeping on top of them. And she and Mayo shared info so everyone was in the loop.

Happy to hear that the varices receded. It’s good that they are monitoring them to ensure they don’t bleed. They first found 2nd degree varices in 2009 but I think my first banding wasn’t until around 2013.
