First Visit to Cincinnati Childrens and Doctor Wong

After being told yesterday that it would be August or September before getting Eric into Cincinnati Children's to see Doctor Wong, i got a call today that an opening materialized next week. Flights and hotel are not yet in place, but I told my boss "I am outta here next week!" and got full support to do so.

In order to be affordable at all, I will have to fly out with him on Saturday and tool around Cincinnati for 2 1/2 days prior to the three days of hospital time. We will also have to stay overnight again and leave on Friday since no flights back to Austin on Thursday. I hate to pull him from another week of school, but it will just have to be so.

Hi Doug,
I am so sorry to hear about Eric's dx, but for help and support you've come to the right place. This is an amazing community, we know how you feel and we are all here for you always. Eric will get the best possible care from Dr. Wong and her staff, and so will you. There is also a family on this site that lives in Cincy and typically has families who are visiting Dr. Wong stay with them. We met them last time we were there and they were wonderful, her name is Leslie Guzman. Please let me know if we can do anything to help you or if you just want to talk. Have a safe trip. Kristin

I know it's late notice, but try this and see if you can get some help with flights:
