Mayo Clinic

Hey we flew out of town to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for most of the week. They offered an appointment to my husband, we are hoping for the best. So my husband, our 8yr old and I, all made arrangements and took off with one week notice. We were at the airport yesterday at 1:00 pm- the flight left at 3:10pm from Seattle. We flew into St Paul -Minnesota approx 8:30 and we were due to fly out to Rochester at approx 10:25. The plane coming in before us was so late it delayed our flight an entire hour. We did not get to leave for Rochester until 11:25, we arrived approx 12:35 and it was snowing. By the time we got bags, taxi & checked in - got ready for bed, it was 2:00 a.m. My husband had a 7:00 appt, we all woke up at 6:00 for his appt. So we are very tired.
It went great, they are very nice, helpful & they are doing alot of tests that were not previously done and some that need to be redone. We have appts, procedures & test scheduled for the next three days. Friday in the evening will be the big day, to tell us if we go home, or stay longer. They will hopefully have answers and help for him. My husband has been sick for seven years and this is his last shot for help. We have tried everything in Seattle and this is the best in the USA. Wish us the best and pray for him, but things are looking up. As long as we can get thru all of the tests - he is so tired of being poked and prodded and of course is a male and we know how well they do when they are sick. :(
