They told us that when Joe gets his transplant he will need to be here for a month. A month! At $100/night for a hotel plus eating out, there is NO way we could afford that! No way. Well, they know that and have a plan for us.
About ten years ago, a family donated land adjacent to the Mayo Clinic campus. The clinic then built casitas and named them The Transplant House. They are available for transplant patients and their caregivers for a small donation. They come with a full kitchen and laundry facilities. They have large communal areas, so you can fellowship with others who are going through the same thing. The only bummer is that the boys will not be allowed, as everyone there has lowered immune systems. Joe probably won't even be able to see them for a month. That will probably be the hardest thing for him.
