Mayo Moments

Thursday, 24 May 2012

We are heading to Minnesota!

I have submitted an appointment request to the Mayo Clinic!  And even more crazy?  They responded with a request for all of Leah's medical records and test results!  And even crazier???  We have an appointment date! Praise the Lord!  His hand is felt in all we do.  Thank you everyone for the prayers you have already sent up on our behalf.

Leah's first appointment with the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is August 7, 2012!  (Yes THIS year!)  They say to expect a stay of 5-8 days.  She will be considered an outpatient though so she will be able to come back to the hotel room with me each night.  From the letter they sent...

Length of Stay: The average length of stay for patients to complete a routine medical exam is 5 to 8 business days, but the actual time spent at the clinic will depend upon the complexity of your case and appointment availability at the time of your appointment.  It can be difficult to predict in advance.  In some circumstances, your evaluation, surgery or treatment may involve a return visit.
She needs to show up that first morning having fasted and they will get going right away.

What to Expect at the Appointment:Your child's Mayo Clinic visit will begin with a thorough evaluation of the medical concerns. The primary physician, who will be responsible for coordinating your child's care, will order additional tests or consultations with specialists, based upon your child's medical needs.  After testing has been completed, the physician will review the results with you and make final recommendations.

Now our biggest obstacle is arranging the finances.  Please, please, please continue to keep her in your prayers.
