We're here in Rochester

Barbie and I arrived safely in the 'land o lakes'. From the air there certainly are many lakes. We are now at the Residence Inn which is one block from the Mayo Clinic. Tomorrow I begin a full day of tests and doctor visits. Rochester is not a big city and clearly has the Mayo Clinic at the center of its influence, (both geographically and figuratively). I have felt the strength that comes from all of your support and love. Thank you so much for all of your sincere thoughts on our behalf.

Kevin and Barbie,

We were shocked to hear the news from Jennifer today of your travel to Rochester but I know the Mayo Clinic is a place that probably hosts some of the best minds in heart medicine so we pray you are in the hands of the best. They were extraordinary in the treatment of my nephew several years ago and we will hope and pray the same for you. You are in our constant prayers. - Mary and Jeff (and all the other Bostwicks)

I hope you can scope out a spot outdoors that will have a restful view, a place to walk and a spot of sunshine. I don't know what it is about the sound of bird song and the smell of grass that is so restorative, but there you are. Maybe it is being reminded that God is the creator of it all that does it. More love from the Farnsworths.
