When I got home today, Clark said that Erin had fallen while transferring from the bed to the wheelchair. When she woke up, I noticed that there was blood on the 2 smallest toes of her right foot. Underneath the 4th toe there was a deep laceration which I thought probably required stitches. So, off we went to the Emergency Room at Kaiser on Morse Av.
Erin was seen fairly quickly, and when the doctor called me in, I thought that he probably needed me to translate, but he was all finished and wanted to explain that it was a difficult area in which to take stitches. So, instead he had glued it. After that we waited a long time for a nurse to bring a boot for her. Then another wait for a tetanus shot.
Erin has been complaining of symptoms of a bladder infection. So, again there were long waits for the test and the results. The result said that there was no infection, but the doctor sent the specimen on for a culture. In the meantime, he prescribed an antibiotic. Again, there was a wait at the pharmacy.
After our 2 hour outing, we arrived home to find that the 49ers had taken the lead – they had been behind 14-0 when we left Kaiser.
