Another turn for the worse

L had his normal appointment with his social worker today at 10am. We got there at 9:45am and left at 2pm. Why? Because he needed a walk-in appointment with one of the PCMs. End result? More meds (antibiotics this time) for a really bad bladder infections. Apparently his back pain had masked pain from a UTI which then turned into a bladder infection. I was not happy with the doctor he saw. It was a different one than he normally sees since his PCM is on vacation until Monday. Despite his pain meds L is still in pain which he told her. Her reply? "Well, you have a bad infection, pain is to be expected" Seriously??? I was too busy today to do anything about it but I will be calling the patient advocate for that clinic on Monday.

Overall, he is still rather irritable. Hopefully the antibiotics will help take care of some of that pain.

And on that note, we still haven't gotten his new meds. They were send out yesterday but via regular mail and not overnighted.
