Sister

My sister fell on the street and broke her left wrist and sprained the right one. She is left handed. She lives in Southern California and can't drive until she gets better. The poor dear is taking buses to get to doctors' offices. What a pain in the patootie in an area that worships cars. The distances are long enough that taking a taxi would be outrageously expensive.

She will be having surgery on the broken wrist on Wednesday. They need to put some piece of metal to align the broken pieces of bone.

They will give her a general anaesthetic on an out-patient basis o_0 They will send her home a few hours after surgery. Yikes! They do require that someone she knows pick her up. Gee, it really sounds like free enterprise in the health care system improves care over "socialist medicine", well, maybe not so much. And my sister has pretty good medical insurance.
