As you know, I went on a road trip to The Mayo Clinic with heart sister BC. She is one tough woman. Three days of testing–part is learning to navigate the system and that’s mentally draining–then there were the diagnostic tests. First, the people of Rochester, MN, and The Mayo are some of the finest examples of goodness, kindness and compassion. They work and see SICK people all day, yet are still pleasant to the next person in line. Wow…
We were extremely lucky that with our personal guides, BC was able to reschedule tests to suit her, and our schedule. Bad that no results could be had. Good, again, that her brother, his delightful and saintly wife, allowed us to totally relax at their house and have some “normal” during this abnormal situation. If not for the “health event,” this would have been a fun trip.
As we were walking from building to building, I spotted a Dale Chihuly piece. Rumor has it there is a janitor that is solely responsible for cleaning it. I believe it.
Another interesting building at The Mayo was the Plummer Building. Dr. Plummer was an associate of the Mayo Brothers. He is responsible for the modern day coding system of colors used outside the office doors! Cool, huh?
