Be careful of your healthcare:or a hole-in-one on Cape Cod! On a quiet March afternoon, after a recent visit with my visiting nurse, I felt the need to go to the emergency room. I did indeed need care. I was dehydrated and more importantly was unaware of the size of the bedsore beneath me. The doctor informed me that it was the size of a golf ball and that I had a serious infection that needed immediate care. Now, I had assumed that the nurse would have informed me. She did not and I was rescued from being the next exhibit at the local putt putt golf course. Moral of the story: question your caregivers! Thank goodness for Eagle Pond wound care! TerryDould
