You can take your guide. It shouldn't be a problem. I forget which section
of the ADA it is, but there is a provision for not discriminating against
someone based on being accompanied by a person with a disability. In this
case that would be your Mom. I feel like I'm not making much sense.
*smile* Hopefully someone who has had more coffee can explain better.
Go, be there for your Mom. I hope everything goes well, both for her and
the ride there.

Hope you all are doing well. I have an interesting question for you all
Currently, my Mom has Medicaid and they have a transportation vehicles to
get their patients to and from medical appointments. Well, my Mom is having
surgery on Friday, and I plan on riding in the vehicle with her. The company
does allow a person to accompany the patient. My question is this, can they
deny me from bringing my guide dog with us? Technically, I am not the
patient. I would think that if I was the patient that they could not deny me
from bringing him, but I don't know how it will work, since I am not the
Has anyone experienced this?
Thanks for any advice.
