The Kaiser ER entrance is on a hill on O'Farrell. Not easy to ride or walk to. I hopped inside and told them I hurt my foot. Answered some questions, sat down. Got called to answer some more questions, have my temperature and blood pressure checked, then sat down again. I was called again to go sit in a shared room with beds and given ice for my foot. Doctor Jeanne came and poked at my foot and asked me questions and sad I would get an x-ray. I was rolled down to the x-ray room on a bed and rolled back again. Doctor Jeanne showed me the x-rays and told me nothing was broken. That was a relief. She said I could hang on to the crutches they gave me, but I declined. If the foot was not broken, I probably would not need crutches for long, and didn't want to bring them back. I paid $50 at the desk on checkout, and hopped outside to my bike outside.
I spent 50 minutes to an hour in the ER in total. I arrived at about 10:45, was being shown my x-ray at 11:30 and was out the door shortly after that. A pretty good ER experience with very little waiting.
Later that night I put ice on my foot again and took some ibuprofen. The next morning I woke up and it was much easier to walk on my foot, so I met with folks in the panhandle and went for a bike ride to Ocean Beach. It must have just been a nasty bruise in a particularly painful spot. By sunday I was able to walk around quite freely.
