Sarah got her bicycle test....

Today we went to the hospital for the bicycle test and to talk with the cardiologist. Sarah was hooked up with many wires, to record all the different heartbeats, oxygen etc. She did well and the doctor told us that they felt she did not need the defibrilator at this time. Her heart is not good, but not yet bad enough for the device. She gave me a lot of advice and we can always email her and we can come back once a year for review. I feel good about it and also Sarah is happy. She didn't talk much about it, but you could tell that it was also a tense time for her. Next week we have a talk with the HIV doctor, about the CD4. Here you see Sarah on her bicycle, the cardiologist you see on her back.
We do also nice things, and sometimes they can be so simple!! Sarah and Helen were very excited to go with uncle Theo to the libary. They had never seen so many books together and they could choose which ones they wanted to take home to read. There is a section with English books, so they found some nice books, which sarah can read at home and I read them to Helen!
We went to visit my aunt and uncle. Sarah fell in love with the oldtimer of my uncle Jaap. It is an old Citroen and you sit so comfortable in it. We went for a ride and you feel like a queen!!!
