A YEAR UNDERFOOT – entry #100

A Year Underfoot

December 7th, 2033

Rachel found the real reason for her little brother’s condition. He has a large slash wound on his upper right thigh. It’s infected, and badly so. He is going to need a steady dose of antibiotics to pull through and I haven’t any.

Long story short, – I’m heading back to Santa Clarita within the hour.
