Mom Knee Update

Mom was still having bad pains in her knee as of this morning. She decided to go ahead and go to the emergency room at Glenwood for a "second opinion". Good thing she did, I guess, because they ran some X-rays, and said she had a torn ligament, NOT gout, as her regular physician said a few days ago.

Emergency room doctor gave her a velcro wrap to put around the knee, a pair of crutches, and told her to keep weight off the knee as much as possible. He also prescribed some pain meds, which I dropped the prescription off at Walgreen's about an hour ago, will go pick up in about 40 minutes from now, around 2:30, when they said it should be ready. I keep telling her she needs to switch to MY pharmacy of choice, Brookshire's. They'd probably have had it ready within half an hour!

She said she'll most likely have some "choice words" for her regular doctor the next time she goes there!
