Last Evening’s Activities

Location: Albuquerque Regional Medical Center, which is *not* much like my local DHMC, in many different ways.
Diagnosis: Pharyngitis After five weeks, it had to be something.
Treatment: Bicillin L-A, 1.2 million units in a 2 cc solution. “Administer by deep, i.m. injection in the upper, outer quadrant of the buttock.” Not enjoyable, trust me.
Details may follow. Summary: Much awareness of human pain and suffering, far beyond my own.
There’s nothing quite like visiting an out-of-town emergency room to bring on recurrent feelings of, “Glad I live where I do.”
