I've been staying by myself so far (almost 4 months), but I've had help. Dr. Pili's assistant gave me a variety of different apartment options and offered to set up a grocery delivery service for me. I ultimately didn't go that route, but if you want I can send you a pm detailing the specifics so you can have an idea of what you might be looking at cost wise (groceries,help,etc.).
As far as staying here all the way through, I'm not sure. I was actually going to leave in a few days but have decided to stay longer since I might need achilles lengthening. If it gets to that point, I might just stick it out here.
