Yesterday (Tuesday), literally five minutes before we were about
to leave for Chicago--Nate was loading and warming up the car--
Dr. Kang called to say I am not eligible for the trial.
Apparently, although I have no symptoms, the EKG showed
that I have a damaged mitral heart valve, and it would
be too dangerous for me to be in the study.
About 5 PM last night Dr. Kang called again to confirm that
the head of the study, Dr. Raitan, had made the final decision
I have an appointment tomorrow (Thursday) at UW to see
Am I surprised? No. Angry about the timing? For sure.
