My friend Betty fell a couple of weeks ago and shattered her elbow. After a week at Bassett and major surgery, she went to Chestnut Park for "rehab" After a few days there, they decided to release her since there really was not anything they could do to rehabilitate her arm since it was in a huge cast/contraption. She had an appointment with the surgeon today, so I picked her up at noon at Chestnut Park. She was all packed up and ready to go!
We had lunch at Pondo's and then headed to Cooperstown. She was x-rayed and then finally saw the surgeon (he was running late, so this took a lot longer than we planned). The surgeon took off the cast, which really was not a total plaster case, it was pretty soft and came off pretty easily. A splint like thing was put on Betty's arm and locked into place.
I finally delivered Betty to her apartment around five fifteen p.m. She and I were both exhausted, mostly from the waiting around.
