Just read your post, it is so strange you mentioned the age difference, Mark is 9 years older than me too! Shel, Mark actually told his doctors he didn't think he needed A.A., but he complied with it to qualify for the transplant. He doesn't mind going to them now, he thinks he is a good example as to why one should not drink!! His drinking just about drove me crazy too!! Just try to relax and be who you are, you will do just fine with the evaluation! I know it is easier said than done, I remember how nervous we were. I will be watching for your updates.
