Day 128: August 8th
Zero day in Medford
Today was a zero day in Medford as we found a doctor to look at the cut on Deb’s heel. She’s going to be OK, although she has an impressive calf-high green bandage. No stitches, just butterfly tape.
As a side note: We were pleased with how our Covered California Kaiser state exchange health plans and Valley Immediate Care worked. Since Kaiser has no offices in this area we were not sure what would happen. Turns out Valley Immediate Care will file a claim with Kaiser and Deb only had to make a $3 copayment. She was happy with the medical care she received too.
Another side note: The Valley Immediate Care doctor commented to Deb about the high number of Pacific Crest Trail hikers their Ashland office was treating for Giardia.
We drove back to the PCT where we are camped tonight. I will hike onward in the morning.
