I dragged my body out of bed this morning and forced clothes on this old body….unfortunately bills do not stop coming just because you are sick and can not work.
What with all the journal madness and such, I don’t know if I told yall about going to the ER or not…Well, I did…and they found blood in my urine and something about proteins??? Anyway they said I had a kidney stone and wanted to do a CT and dye job on me the following Monday.
I had to hurt all weekend and when I went to the hospital that Monday, the lady there in the registration office said it had to be scheduled…I told her that the ER doctor did it the Friday before…She said…”ok…I need your insurance card”…I said I no longer had my insurance…she said “ok..Then that will be $1284.00 up front”….
I was shocked…I said,” can’t we work out a payment plan?”…and she said…that “this is NOT a free hospital”…Heck I didn’t say it was…I have never gotten anything free…why start now at this late date…Of course I didn’t say this…only thought it…
What I did say..was …”well…ok…I see”…and as I started out the door…the lady said..”You should have went to the ER and they would have done it there” I told her I did go to the ER and the DR. told me to wait till Monday because there were no radiology techs there on weekends…….she said”well he wasn’t suppose to do that”…
but he did…
So I have been here, at home, for over two weeks, trying to give birth to a kidney stone…fighting a raging kidney, and bladder infection…and after 4 different types of antibiotics, plus a bag full of the strongest kind in the ER…I have also been fighting a yeast infection of the mouth, throat and other areas of my body…The bottle of stuff for that was over $50.00.
So I dragged my self to work today. I kept praying that the day would hurry up and go by…By the end of eleven hours, my left side and back was killing me so bad that I kept hoping the dang kidney stone would just fall out….but it didn’t.
Tomorrow I go back again…..Please say a prayer for me.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
