Surprise Trip to the ER

We had a surprise trip to the ER last night. Hubby fell and hurt his ankle. We thought for sure by the way it swelled it was a break but we were lucky to find out it was just a bad sprain. THANK GOD!

He is in an air brace and on crutches.

I can say that the ER we went to was awful. It took 2 hours to get us seen by the nurse. They kept promising we were 2 from next then next and 10 people many with way minor injuries were called. It would have been longer but I threatened the manager with calling my insurance company and the Hospital service excellence team and then all of a sudden we were in and out.

Needless to say we will not be using that ER again but are thankful the outcome was that he only has a sprain.

  1. ER's are always horribly slow - especially when you have non-life threatening issues...

    Hopefully the sprain heals quickly!

  6. I went through something very similar to this with my boyfriend-he swore it was broken but turned out to be a bad sprain. He got a shot in the booty and within minutes was walking on it.
