Ended up with a 4:30 pm MD apt. for Granny. Double Trouble graciously took and kept my growling, ungrateful children. Granny has lymphodema due removal of lymph nodes when she had a mastectomy 10 years ago. MD said she had an infection and that it was quite common in individuals who had lymphodema and was surprised she hadn't had it before. She got a shot of antibiotics and a perscription for abx pills. 24 hours later her arm looks better and is clearly improving. Good news. If that wasn't the case she would have needed IV antibiotics, meaning hospitalization. Nice to have avoided that.
