I just wanted to let you know that I feel like you are doing the right thing. I am young (19), and do not know much about this problem, however, you mentioned that you are going to Jefferson and I think that is great! I am working for an International company right now (co-op experience for college of nursing) that sends international patients to hospitals in the Philadelphia area. Jefferson is our top hospital, and we actually recently sent someone there for headaches (she has a different issue), but the patient was quite pleased. I am just hoping that this post gives you some optimism, especially if we are in fact speaking of the same hospital! :).
