ROAD TRIP: (Pre-op appointment) navigation

One of the bad things about living where I do is the lack of health care professionals to meet specific needs. We have plenty of good surgeons in the area.  We just don't have an OB-GYN or an operatory capable of handling a total laparoscopic hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo oophorectomy. For that, I need Canton OH.

My insurance will pay for transportation on the day of surgery, thank goodness. As the only driver for the household, I won't be anyone's taxi for two weeks after surgery, possibly four if there are complications.

I'm not looking forward to it.

My pre-op testing is tomorrow.  It's a good hour and a half drive for us.  Better Half and I will make it into something fun. We always do.

That said, I learned from my Baltimore trip that my smart phone is a pain in the ass when it comes to displaying driving directions.  I'm going to drop the route here, in nice big letters, so the husfiend can navigate for us.
