Taking Hubby to the ER - update in red

He laid down after his fall this morning and his legs are still giving him touble..he could not move his right leg at all when he tried to get up and cannot walk with out both me and his cane, and then he barely made it to the bathroom and back without collapsing. He can't even get his own shoes on. He refuses to let me call an ambulance so we are waiting for his sister and her hubby to show up so we can take him to the ER. Will update when we get back.

Finally home, after 6 hrs in the ER's urgent care. DX of muscle spams (no cause given) sent home with flexeral, vicodin, and naproxin. They took an x-ray to make sure he did not break/crack his hip (it was fine). They gave him a shot of Tordal while we were there and it worked great.....he was even able to drive home.

Be sure to get copies of the exam today and then contacting SS with all of that information.  They may waive the exam by their doctor.

I hope he'll feel better tomorrow.  Glad you took him to be sure what was wrong though.

Glad to hear nothing was broken and that you are finally getting home. Hoping that he is not too sore tomorrow.
