After many hours at Valley Hospital tonight, they took off the very poorly done splint UMC put on the 10th of May when I came in with a fractured ankle and part of my foot. I also got two referrals to an orthopedic doctor that was suppose to have an instant opening, unlike UMC who referred me to one who has no openings until November!
Pray each one if you that I will get in no problem and that the feature isn’t bad as and heals quickly. I am not sure if a cast will be put on or not.
The 27th I have my first appointment with my new internal medicine doctor who can write badly needed referrals to any further orthopedic doctors, and a mammagram, new glasses, teeth cleaning, and write a prescription for a motorized scooter, which will help me every day, even if I hadn’t fractured my ankle.
At least now, when I take a shower I can take the boot off and shower, instead have a fiberglass and bandage splint covered with a plastic bag on my foot and leg!
Pray I find a good attorney so I can sue RTC who turned me down for paratransit saying I wasn’t disabled enough! I guess I am now….but only temporarily.
