They may have a sister site where they're able to do your testing local to you. At least the preliminary testing to see if you're a match. If you're coming from out of state for the more advanced testing, they will schedule you some long days (if that's the case I would encourage you not to have the kiddos with). There's a whole separate scheduling system for transplants that is very friendly in my experience. Make sure you let them know what your desires are and they try to work with them in mind. My husband never came to any appointments or even to my surgery (he came to the hospital to take me home that's a requirement for whomever you list as your caregiver). If you're flying in you might need to choose a caregiver wherever you are staying since you will be unable to fly for 1 week.
