Mayo Clinic





These are a few pictures of some of the mayo buildings (its huge) and our hotel. We are so glad we came here, we are learning so much and received so much information and our hearts are being filled with hope. Everyone here is so nice.

Yesterdays schedule included meeting our doctor, a chest x-ray, blood work, a 24 hour urine collection and an EKG. After my appts. we headed in Minneapolis to pick up a pontoon boat that my dad bought and then had dinner at my all time FAVORITE restaurant (which used to be close by my home town but they closed down right when i realized how much i loved it!)

It was sooo yummy!!



Today we had breakfast at the Pannekoeken dutch family restaurant( so good, thanks for the recommendation amanda)
Then we met with the doctor again, had more blood drawn (16 viles!!) Had lunch at the cafeteria( we ate lunch there yesterday too), met with the surgeon and i am at dialysis right now. After this its time to head back to our hotel room, and rest. We are planning on ordering room service for dinner, yeah we are high rollin' here!!! lol! And later tonight there is an art fair in the plaza next to our hotel that we might check out! Thanks for checking in and we have felt your prayers in so many ways both large and small...thank you so much!

I am so glad that things are going well at the Mayo clinic and you are getting more information. :) I hope that everything continues to go well. Also, glad to see that you are able to get out and do some fun things while you are there. Have fun at the art fair.

Katie- If you guys are looking for dinner places in Rochester, try the Redwood Room. It is fantastic.
