Mass General and the MBTA

Walking to MassGeneral after we got off the T


Sammy, my big boy riding the T

Well Sam and I got up early and dropped Sophia off then went to train station. I can't even begin to describe the shear joy that Sam had as we road the subway. Simple pleasures right? It was the first time that I had braved the subway myself and thankfully everything went very smoothly.
We then went to Mass General Coordinated Care Clinic, and this place truly seems too good to be true. It is hard to imagine that there could be another great hospital that is comparable right next to Children's. I am trying to not think too much about it until I have my follow up visits. But as I spoke with the doctors nurse practitioner, social worker, and a few others, I really felt as though they were really there for us and that they would do WHATEVER we need to get the best care for Sam. For example, the doctor said what do you think are Sam's two biggest issues right now? And when I responded GI and bleeding issues, she said I will get you an appointment with those specialists. She called me before the end of the day, and has an appointment with both specialists within 2 weeks!!!
They are also researching our school district to determine what will be needed for Sam to be safe at school here:-)
