My Trip to the Mayo Clinic: Travel Experiences

IV fluids

Before I left for the Mayo Clinic I made sure I was hydrated:

IV fluids

IV fluids are the best! A little NS and LR and I was on my way!

My flight schedule was nothing less than intimidating:

Norfolk –> Detroit –> Minneapolis –> Rochester

It may not look terrible to most, but to me it felt like running a marathon without training. Here I am at the airport:

My travel buddy and I had a few hurdles to overcome on the way. Despite the broken shoe, late wheelchair, and a shirt that perpetually set off the metal detector, we made it the full 26.2 and arrived at the Mayo Clinic late afternoon today.

Tomorrow my day starts early. Check in at 7am.

Tomorrow will be a long day full of blood work, tests, and doctors; I sure hope it holds answers.

  1. Take care of yourself. I’ll be checking in with you regularly.
    Love you!

  2. Sarah, I’ll definitely keep praying for you! I hope they’re able to give you some answers!

  3. Best of luck with everything. My sister-in-law just finished diagnosis and treatment the past 5-6 weeks. We all live outside of Chicago, and luckily the winter has been mild. Not sure why both of you chose Minnesota over the Arizonia one, though….

  4. Hello Sarah Beth,
    I know you a bit through your mom and Carla. I wish you all the best tomorrow and I’m saying lots of prayers for you! Mayo Clinic is wonderful and they’ll take good care of you!

  5. I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers Sarah. You’re in the best hands at Mayo and hopefully will soon have an answer. If I can do anything don’t hesitate to call, or tweet!

  6. Get well–I want my dollar that you owe me.
    I will collect as VATech won big time. All joking aside “get well” your family and us at large need to see your smiling face. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
