Well, it happened, I got thrown into the hospital without ins.

I woke up on Monday night shivering so hard I almost fell off the bed.
I had to use the restroom them put on sweatpants and socks and a sweatshirt.
I still couldnt stop shivering, and I was having trouble catching my breath.
After a few minutes we went to the emergency room.
By that time my lips were blue and I was talking to my mom who passed away 5 years ago.
They put me on oxygen and after about 20-30 min. of not knowing my name or my wife's name I started coming around.
I told them I couldn't be admitted as I couldn't afford it.
and actually got up, then fell over.
They convinced me to stay.
Now the scary part, they found a shadow on my esophagus and took a biopsy.
I got the word today that its benign, whew.
Now how to pay for it, I just got out today.
I pretty much got the pneumonia licked and the throat thing is fixable.
I lucked out, now the nail biting begins.I think it's ridicules that I got hurt on the job and have to beg for help.
I would have gladly paid the group rate but, no, I was thrown out on my ass.

Stay tuned...
