mental tests

As part of the ‘qualification’ process for a future transplant, I must undergo several systems tests to make sure everything’s working as it should – cardiopulmonary, skeletal, etc. –

Today was the Mental Health assessment – part two, actually. The first was a computerized quiz of sorts, today was a totally human interview. I was asked all sorts of things – quizzed on my past, (a lot of which was questions about drug/alcohol use) and some fun memory/cognitive ability tests. One test involved naming as many words that were NOT pronouns or variation of the same thing, i.e. door/doors etc. They all had to begin with the letter F. I skipped the rather tempting 4 letter words – you know, like fart. 😉 My amateur radio friends would recognize some others like Ferrite, Faraday (although I self-rescinded that since it IS someone’s name). Others were Finicky, Fiduciary, etc. My interviewer said I had an interesting list. Not sure if that’s good or bad. She said she didn’t have any concerns with my test results. (but they probably tell everybody that).

It’s been 2 weeks since they pulled all of my teeth. Gums are healing nicely but it’ll be awhile before I can enjoy a sammich methinks.

Thanks again for your support! — Ken

What's all this?

I’ve consolidated my health updates to friends & family from other sites for convenience.

GoFundMe & MyLifeLine were super-easy to use, but I didn’t want folks to feel compelled to donate while reading the latest news.

If you do feel prompted to help, use this link – they take no cut, so all of your gift goes to pay down expenses.

Better yet, why not hire me to do something great for your organization?

I’m going to add a link to expenses here pretty soon.  It’s crazy –
