3 hotels later we are finally settled. The first hotel when I booked with them said they have a shuttle to Mayo that runs until 10pm. When we got there Friday night, we were told the shuttle only runs until 6pm and does not go to Mayo. We were also told that they do not have room to put her wheelchair in the back of the shuttle, even if we fold it up.
The second hotel was not a good fit either. The pictures looked great, but there were quite a few surprises! Kayla was too big to fit in the shower in the room, the toilet was a public toilet, and there were a few other things.
It took 2 hours for the cab to pick us up at the second hotel due to the weather and the high demand of cabs around here. Which would have been fine, except I had to sit at the entrance waiting for him to arrive. It was cold!
The people here are SO nice! It is no wonder why people do not like people from CA. No one we have encountered is grumpy, in a rush, rude, snide, or short. Random strangers have helped us along the way, without us even asking. If it was not so cold here, this is where I would want to raise our girls.
Kayla is very tired. With everything yesterday, and traveling the day before she has not had a lot of time to rest. Today we will stay in and she can sleep all her body needs. The cold has bothered her some. No anaphylaxis, but hives and flushing.
She is now registered at Mayo, and everything begins tomorrow at 7:30am. We will take the 6:10am shuttle from the hotel to the drop off point. From there it is about two miles to where we need to be. The area on the "subway" (what they call an underground walkway, NOT a train) that we will be walking through tomorrow is closed today. We are leaving early since I am not exactly sure where we are going.
I will attach a picture of the snow yesterday. It started snowing about 2 hours before I took the pictures. It is really pretty.
Hope everyone is well
