I get 3 nights here, then will have to move. I've been in touch with insurance and the medical team has recommended I go home early - this Thursday is the earliest they can get but I'm home in one day, with assistance. This morning the travel team will determine if they will fund the changed flight or not. If they won't, then I will stay until Saturday and do my original flights which have an over night in Houston :(
I went to Clinic Esperanza which is a 2 minute drive away. For immediate service, I paid $28.38 Can which included 30 pills of Aleve, crutches and doctors filling out insurance forms. I had to go to Coxen Hole for the X-rays - $79.46 Can so Mercedes my Spanish teacher drove me there. I took a cab back. The radiologist??? (the guy who took the X-rays, who knows his qualifications??), said I have a fractured calcaneus, evident by a small white line in the xray. The doctors at the clinic said nothing was broken until I pointed out the white line and then they were sort of dismissive about it, not rude but I don't think they think it's broken. Anyway, it's still swollen-
My new best friends-
Before I found my new besties, I had to crawl around on all fours and bum slide down the many stairs. The skin is gone from my right knee-
Such craziness! And so this morning I await the email from insurance.....
