I have only good things to say about our experience. The clinic runs like a well organized city, and feels almost as big as one. It's cultural melting pot with every nationality you can imagine. Everyone was kind, and helpful, and above all, thorough. Our patient coordinator Shelly said she sees teenagers with Sierra's case scenario almost daily. It was so validating (for both Sierra and me) to know this is not something Sierra could just "snap out of". After a week of testing, Shelly sent us home with what they call a "recovery" program. Sierra and I are both very optimistic. In between appointments, we stepped out into a ten degree day for a little photo shoot. Since Sierra enjoys photography herself, she appreciates a good, willing subject and humored me for the seven minutes that we could hang with the cold. My roots are midwest all the way, but ten degrees?!
Loved this historic Barnes and Noble right outside our hotel.
This one was taken by a really nice soccer player that we met from Dubai (trying to find answers at Mayo for a knee problem). Best people watching ever spending time at the clinic.
There is nothing worse then seeing your kids suffer and not being able to help. I mean really?! That's what moms do, we help. Feeling incredibly grateful for the good people of Mayo clinic, and the hope that they've given us.
