Dzień pierwszej konsultacji był niezmiernie ważny. Zostałam pacjentką AKH. Od tej pory wszystkie moje wyniki były konsultowane i przesyłane do Wiednia.
Są jednak fakty, o których trzeba wspomnieć- mianowicie mieszkam 1 200 km od Wiednia!
Dlatego też każdy mój wyjazd przez całą Polskę do stolicy Austrii, jest nie lada przygodą;)
W moją pierwszą wyprawę do Wiednia wybrałam się z moją mamą, bratem i wujkiem - bratem mojej mamy. O 4.00 wyjechaliśmy z mojego miasta rodzinnego Kartuz ( 30 km obok Gdańska).
How my uncle said: " Behind them we can only see dust!". My mum closed her eyes and she dozed off in the end. These were unforgettable moments... "I am going for my chance for longer and better life...". Wrapped from every side high mountains, darkness and shimmering lightings watching the rushing car through the pane I felt that I would win. About 5.00 in the morning we drove to sleeping Vienna. There was still a darkness. White facades of high buildings of Vienna and empty streets, they felt as if we drove to other world. How my mum said: "Vienna is like the box of chocolates, so sweet, so caressed...". We were expecting of "two towers hospital AKH” - as Dorota Hedwig said we supposed to search. There is a 6.00 in the morning. We are running into the underground AKH car park. Giant. Paweł was our angel which led us around innumerable, kilometre AKH corridors. Only him was good at German. He was translating ours talks with doctors. We are sitting finished on the huge main entrance hall.
About 8.00 was open registration. We must payed the cost consultation. The tiredness grows with every moment. Was the uncertainty and thoughts: "what they will say?", „Whether they will want at once to classify us or not” and ”will we go the list up expecting?", " Did they found some the barrier for the transplant?". I am sitting by Piotr and Mateusz on plastic chairs. Mateusz is falling asleep and he is going down off the chair. Everyone had bloodshot from tiredness eyes and we were to collapse. Nurse read my surname. I am talking to the coordinator of transplants English. However they want to hear confirming mum, how indeed I am functional. Paweł was helping. After 20 - 30 consultation was end. It was necessary to wait for the decision. Marcelina is going know to doctros. Piotr is bringing the large coffee and for me teacake... so lovely with the yellow peach which looks like yolk and I am saying: You bought the teacake for me with the egg?!:) – He had knocked into the head.:) It was my admission to the delicious Vienna food which I discovered later.
When Marcelina consultation end, after a few minutes we heard the decision of doctors "Arrive after half year". It wasn’t the time for our qualification.
