From Julian's COTA journal
We arrived at Ronald McDonald House in Palo Alto at 5 p.m. today, got checked in and settled pretty quickly. It's been a long journey here, and even with the day at Disneyland yesterday (which although fun is hardly relaxing), we are glad to be here.
We've already bumped into some familiar faces, from the folks here at RMH, to some of the shop keepers at the mall across the road, and even one of Julian's nurses from last year, who happened by while we were out for a walk. It was good to catch up. Palo Alto really feels like home away from home.
Our first stop tomorrow is Radiology at 10 a.m. for an ultrasound. Then at noon, we meet with Dr. Kennedy to talk about the future of Julian's bladder and urinary track. Next week, we meet with the kidney Docs, and on Tuesday, Julian goes under for the biopsy.
Stay tuned - we'll try to keep things up to date.
