I just took Mom to see her primary doc last Monday. We had to report that she had somehow bruised and torn skin on the backs of her legs – we think from the running board on a caregiver’s car. The doctor noticed one leg seemed to be healing well but the other he frowned at. There was nothing to be done, but we should definitely keep an eye on it.
Yesterday afternoon I had to leave work early and run down to Olympia to take Mom to the walk-in clinic. It was infected all right. They prescribed some antibiotics and an antibiotic ointment.
Tomorrow if her primary doc is around I will try to get her in to see him about it. I hope it will heal quickly.
