ER Shenanigans

Sami's Shenanigans


My weekend was not fun. I have hardly any pictures. On Friday, when I got off work, the husband informed me that he knee was swelled up. Most people would be like oh just ice it. Not us. About 2 years ago this happened to him and he had a infection and had to have surgery right away and was in the hospital for 4 days. 

On Saturday once he agreed to go to the ER...I took him to on of the great hospitals we have around here. We are very lucky to have 2 wonderful hospitals near us and we are able to choose which we want to go to.   We choose this one because it is private and there are no students,residents, etc there. That gets old. We explained to them about his other knee and what happened before. 

To sum up his ER visit: The general surgeon yelled at him, the ortho surgeon just wanted to go home so he took a sample of the infection and gave him oral antibiotics and forgot to put the order in for the IV antibiotics and they gave him nothing for pain.  His knee is still double the size it should be, bright red and if anything brushes up against it, he yells in pain. We will now more than likely be going to a different ER/doctor because of the horrible service we received at one of the top hospitals in our area. 


So....we shall see what happens. Lets hope it does not get into his joint in he knee.
