Jenn, Her Foot and a Fire Extinguisher...

Posted by Dan on Jun 13, 2003 @ 2:07 PM

Ok, so yesterday was an interesting day. At 2:42pm I get a call from Jenn. She apparently was walking to ladies bathroom at work and bumped into the fire extinguisher on the wall and fell of and hit her square on the right foot. I took off from work to pick her up and take her to the ER. Fortunately, she works at a medical supply chain, so they were able to lend her some crutches on the spot.

We went from her work straight to St. Anne's ER room. They weren't terribly busy and we only waited like 45 minutes before getting back called back for the exam. The hospital did all there paperwork and then they wheeled her back to take the X-Ray. Fortunately, I had my Gameboy Advance SP with me, so I just played for the couple minutes it took for them to take the X-Ray.

Fortunately it doesn't look like she broke anything, although we've yet to hear back from the radiologist to confirm the ER doctors initial findings. They told Jenn to stay home from work until Tuesday and just to try to stay off of it as much as she can. They also gave her some Percocet to ease the pain. She seemed to be doing ok this afternoon, but the last time I talked to her she had just taking some Percocet, so she sounded pretty tired (and she was getting ready to take a nap.)

Hopefully she's feeling better tomorrow—I'd hate for her not to get to be able to go up to Niles to see her father on Father's Day, but worse comes to worse, she can come to my parent's with me.
