|Kaiser Hospital, Modesto 2011|
By the time Mike got to the imposing Kaiser Hospital in Modesto, he was pretty wiped out. But, Hali seemed to be doing OK!
She had had an operation to repair her broken hip, during which an intriguing-looking titanium rod was implanted. (No cast, which Mike was relieved to discover.) The main issue was trying to figure out how to manage the trip home, given the large amount of camping equipment in the not-large Infiniti. In the end it worked out OK with all the equipment crammed into the trunk and the front seat with Hali sitting in the back.
Oh yes, Mike stayed at a motel that night and slept quite soundly. For dinner, he was surprised to find himself eating Meal #3 at the Modesto In-N-Out Burger on Pelandale Avenue.
