Hey Boopieup!! you get to go and see what is what, good deal!
I stayed at the Sheraton. I asked for a disabled room and they have them with showers on the 4th floor. I still walk with a cane it was a too long walk for me so I had to ask day 2 to be on the ground floor near the disabled door.
The showers are about 5 feet long but they do have a little bit of a lip to them...I do not know if you could roll in over that or not, I think so but I do not use a chair so I would not want you to count on that based on me..
It also had a built in shower chair you can put down and sit on that a person could transfer to pretty easily. The shower head was a handheld so that a person could make all kinds of messes in their with it. The door slid to one side like a barn door.
The bathroom was huge in that room, the bedroom part was not very big, they may have a suite or something that would be bigger though. I have a feeling that 6 feet of Boopieup and chair would fill up the hallway pretty good with not a lot of extra space. The beds were big and comfortable though....VERY comfortable.
And you can bring your doggie, should you be so inclined.
I took mine and was sort of sorry cause Bill couldn't leave her easily to talk to doc with me. You are not allowed to leave them in the hotel. She had to stay on her bed in the car, we drove our car though so that was familiar to her. She's a border collie.
After your testing and imaging you will talk to Dr Dake as you decide if surgery is good you will get to ask questions so keep a paper.....
Stents in heart patients often are changed with time. I asked Dr D about how long they'd last and he said he thought they'd be permanent. Since this is new PLEASE ask him again Boopieup and tell us what he said??
Cnclear asked about nickel and he told her she can have nickle free stents apparently....CNClear? answer this please?
They have a recovery room for the immediate post surgical phase and I stayed overnight in the hospital. Then I recovered in my room at the Sheraton for 3 days....
they'll tell you about food in the presurgery visit with Dr d.
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you...
