Bit of drama today. PT was cut short as Ali persuaded me to go to ER for DVT. Would have been straightforward if Telluride took my insurance. But as with everything it's never that easy. Durango is the closest that takes my insurance (Montrose and Cortez are an hour closer. In fact I drove past Cortez). So I made the two and a half hour trip in under two hours. Great people once again. Because it's below the knee, it's going to be monitored, no meds yet. Another plus four and a half hour drive back tomorrow to see the surgeon.
It's been very helpful having an Ortho surgeon as a friend and an anesthetist wife. There's no way I'd have gone without the latter's moaning (both wanted me to go closer). But they persuaded me and the ER doc said it was extremely important I had.
