A Trip to the Hospital: Part II — 39 Comments

  1. Oye. I assume, since you are who you are, this all has a “happy” ending. Filling me with angst, yet again, cat lady 😉

  2. reading this is making me a little bit nauseated because of the familiarity of it…Which I suppose says a lot about your writing…granted it says nothing about our healthcare system…

  3. That’s stressful. I love how they tell you not to worry about the future assets. That’s exactly when you should worry! Healthcare and insurance are big headaches. I hope it works out for you.

  4. Ai-yi-yi! I need to know that you were okay! Good grief – talk about storyteller-sneaksiness! You’re killing me by doing this in parts!

    I’m glad you got better though, and that the healthcare was available to you…just hope that the next part is alright! Wow.

  5. You needed Nicole in that desperate situation….she would have told you how to sneak and squeak through the system.

  6. I really hope that you are writing a part 3…Reading this story makes me even angrier about the government shut-down and the backlash against the ACA. The Act might not be perfect, but if it gives even some people access to affordable health care and makes for fewer stories like this, it’s worth it. Thanks for sharing your story. I think it should be printed out and plastered to the House and Senate floor.

    • I know. I get so angry hearing about the backlash from people who’ve never been in dire straits like that. I just felt compelled to write my experience right now, while it’s timely.

  7. Oh my God, I’m SO very glad that I’m Canadian!! I can’t imagine being afraid to seek medical treatment when I am that sick or having to declare bankruptsy over a hospital stay like so many have to do in the States. Our system with Universal Medicare may not be perfect but stories like yours make me appreciate what we have, flaws and all.

    I’m glad that you are better and hope that part three will show us a good ending to this financial trial.

  8. and the saga continues….
    I was waiting for this part 2! Now I’ll be waiting for a part 3? What happened? did you sign? did the county take care of the bills? did you go back to rehab and continue to recuperate? NATALIE!!!!

  9. Reading this reminded me of all the times I was given papers to sign for my mom because she couldn’t sign and the fear that the state/county/government/boogiemen would eventually be able to seize my entire life from me as a result. I do hope this all turned out OK, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it didn’t, at least not at first.
