Special K

I have to admit, I'm running out of cereals.

Hooray! We have successfully made it to Rochester, MN, home of the world-renowned Mayo Clinic. Our hotel is right across the street from St. Mary's Hospital...which I thought was Mayo. Got a little too excited there.

Anyway, six hours on the road and only a few back spasms! Yay! This has been my longest "active" day...probably since Christmas Eve. I'm happy to be awake enough to write this now.

My eyes were (are) *super* sensitive today. It was overcast the whole way up, but I wore sunglasses because everything seemed (seems) so bright. I kept trying to yawn to make my eyes water, no such luck. Dry, itchy, burning-feeling, but a little relief once it was dark.

Mom is putting forth an Olympic effort, organizing my mountains of blood tests. You know, Chuck, she's been training for this event her entire life. Is that so? Yes, super-mom and butt-kicking attorney will need to be at her best to compete with these seasoned doctors. Did you know she's been studying "House" screenplays? I'm not surprised. Nothing can stop this mom! Will she win the gold? Only time will tell, Jody. Back to you, Vic.

Wow, I am really out of it. I consider it an act of public service that I am not pursuing a career in comedy. That's how much I love my fellow man.

good night,

p.s. 7:15am tomorrow! Ten hours...YES!


  1. I'm sure they will be able to help you at Mayo. Its a fantastic place. My uncle is a liver doctor and they have done all my families medical stuff. Good Luck!

  2. Hi Emma!
    Glad I checked your blog... sounds like you and your SuperMom are on the case in Rochester. She is also a SuperSister!

    I think it's a wise decision to go to Mayo for some answers. Love you guys, and anxious to hear about your experience :)

  3. Yippy skippy you are there at the Mayo Clinic at this very moment, yeah!

    We're thinking and praying for you!

    My kids new favorite cereal is Cocoa Puffs Combos, not as healthy as yours, but they love the chocolate and vanilla combination.

  4. Glad you got through the trip as well as you did; sorry that your eyes were hurting. I hope and pray that Mayo will find the answers.

    And hey, I liked your comedy bit. You did fine. And you're right: Mom is awesome.

  5. I hope they have the answers you seek.

    love and prayer
