Pontevedra Sept 15
3:30 pm: They opened the albergue a bit early so we signed in, found our assigned bunks, and I took a shower, washed clothes, and ate a snack. We were hoping that with the minimal amount of walking, that Marge's knees would be better. Not the case and now Marge could barely hobble around. We took a taxi to the emergency room of the hospital in Pontevedra. As I write this, they have examined Marge's knee. She is on an IV drip, they are doing blood tests and x rays.
Marge will be fine. Just no more long distance walking for a few days. I went back to the albergue, needed to get groceries for tomorrow and so on. The ER was really busy and they still want to do an echo Doppler. She will take the taxi back when done. I am not sure what this will do to our plans. We need to evaluate that tomorrow.
