thank goodness for the er

boy, is kroger going to pay.

i spent seven hours in the er today on two separate trips. the diagnosis? a sprained ankle, a sprained knee and a concussion. i’m really glad now that my mom got me to go. i really wasn’t hurting too bad when i went the first time, but toward the end of my two hours there, my back, knee, ankle and head were hurting. i told them my head was hurting, but they didn’t check it and sent me on my way.

i headed in to work, and my head was feeling really fuzzy and it was really hurting. our station’s consultant came by to ask me something, and i couldn’t understand what he was saying. he said it three times, and it just sounded like gibberish. that’s when i knew something was wrong. he told me to record my news and go home because he thought i had a concussion as well. joe left work early, and i went back to the hospital. four hours and one ct scan later, it was diagnosed as a concussion. luckily, there was no bleeding.

kroger paid for my first visit, but refused to pay for the second. all i have to say is that i’m not done with them yet.

after we left the hospital, we went to gondolier for some much needed food, and then came home to watch the series finale of gilmore girls that joe recorded on the dvr. but, when we walked in, we noticed a trail of blood in the living room and kitchen. little miss sasha has some sort of cut between her toes. we’re not sure how that happened, but when joe gets up every two hours to check on me (the discharge papers said to do that and my sweet husband is not one to take chances), he’s going to be checking on her as well. we called the emergency clinic and were told to take her to our vet in the morning unless the bleeding starts again.

three vet visits in three days. they’re going to start getting sick of our little girl!

    Oh, they’ll pay; I guarantee it. Just mention that you’re filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and that you’re calling a lawyer and they’ll probably take care of it right away. If they don’t, then really do contact the BBB, and they’ll help you take care of it. They’ve always been a huge help to me.

    Yes, definitely threaten to call a lawyer.

    You see, doing your own grocery shopping / errand running is hazardous to your health. You should probably get Kroger to pay for a servant to do the dangerous work in the future.

    Seriously, though, that sucks. Hope you feel better!

    Oh, what a bad week for you! I’d make them pay too! I can’t believe the way they treated you when it happened! As a property manager, if someone slipped in my building, I’d be super nice to them!

    Oh wow Cady! I hope you get to feeling better. And yes, by all means, do not give up on Kroger paying for those medical bills. They have business insurance that covers personal injuries like that. If you need to consult a lawyer as well and get some good advice, do so. Don’t let them scare you. If they are liable they should be responsible and pay. Get better soon!
