    Thank you again Ikoiko for the detailed information. I followed your direction exactly and we got to the 7th floor easily. About an hour later they wanted us to go to the aptly named Farr building. I must have looked stricken as he offered to call for an ambulance. But I called the driver I use As he waits to take me home. So he came back to Binney and drove us to the Farr building. John is still there and I am home. Your directions made this day a lot easier.

    I'm so glad you have a driver, who is reliable and takes good care of you. Is John being admitted?

    Thank you, ikoiko, for helping Linda and John. These situations are stressful enough without the addition of not knowing where you're going.

    Many prayers on the way for you and John, Linda. I hope you'll keep us updated.

    Love & Light,

    Have them drop you at the front door for the Shapiro Building at 98 Binney Street. That is the lobby. On your left (about 20-30 feet) you will find the elevators to the next level lobby. Go up one level and go around the corner to your left to find the main elevators that will take you to the 7th floor (about 30 feet of walking). There should be wheelchairs in both lobbies

    There is a Starbucks on the lower lobby, and some sort of snack area on the upper lobby.

    I have never parked in the garage, but the enterance seems to be well marked.

    Bless you Ikoiko for helping Laz out!! I hope you stay and post moreó !

    So, John is still in the Farr building. They are doing lots of stress tests etc.....no decision on pacemaker yet. John heard them talk about discharging him. So it is 4:00 pm and we use a limo that I would send from western ma to Boston to get him.

    We need time to call our driver and arrange things...John is afraid they will simply put him out on the street! I told them to ask if they can help him get an Uber ride but he has not done that yet. It is hard to figure out what is going on...he just got back to his room from a stress test so I doubt they will pack his bags. While I was writing this I thought if my driver can’t get him, and no one helps him get an Uber lift..he could call a cab! I wish he had someone there to help him....he sounds nervous.

    Linda, it is upsetting I know. I hope they have found John's problems and that they either keep him overnight or get him a way home.

    Laz, this is very upsetting. Are you too far away to go back to where John is?..Will they talk with you on the phone?

    So sorry I am still in PA, Linda. Can you call the hospital and ask for the nurses’ station for the floor that he is on. Ask his nurse your questions and explain your dilemma.

    Best to you both,

    It's been about 2 1/2 hours since you posted. I hope that the situation is resolved. John should not be discharged, unless he has transportation in place. His nurse, the social worker or discharge nurse could call a cab for him.

    ANN's suggestion is great. I always get to know Jim's nurses on the phone, and they know to contact me, if he needs something.

    Healing prayers on the way `

    Love & Light,
