After clearing customs with all our belongings, we proceeded to our rental car and tried to figure out how to get us headed north, out of the maze of traffic and freeways. Mailia and I plugged into her computer to get us going in the right direction while Max did his best to navigate through all the hustle and bustle the end of the day usually brings. Still had to stop at a convenience mart to ask directions after getting detoured a bit. Oh well.
The next morning, Nov. 4th 2011 we got to the hospital and checked in with the beautiful administrative staff at Dr. Blacks new office. Here we visited for awhile, checked Mailia’s vitals and all her medical records before proceeding over to the hospital for her scheduled Echocardiogram study. Dr. Black was a little surprised that Mailia had showed up with a replacement “SteelDust”…a stuffed toy that was supposed to resemble her little service dog that he went as far as noting that fact in her medical report he later generated from this visit which we will expound on shortly.
