Kiana, I live in NJ about an hour from NYC. I think your plan to go to Cleveland is a good one. Then, give NY a try. If you decide to come to NY let me know if I can help. Most of the big hospitals have a hotel theynwork with. If not I know a fabulous hotel right by Grand Central Station. We stayed there when my son was in the hospital for over 2 weeks.
he is doing better, thank you for asking. But the problem is still not completely resolved. It might be a long summer!
