Life keeps on coming

Ended the weekend with a bang, so to speak. DS fell during a wheelchair transfer and we had to call EMS to lift him. The blood. Oh. My. Word. It was everywhere. He has a nice gash on his head that required stitches, but no broken bones, which is nothing short of miraculous given his brittle bones. I lost a couple years off my life, though.

Something I learned from this experience: If EMS responds to your 911 call but doesn't transport the patient to a hospital, you aren't billed anything. Who knew?

Now the ER bills will be another thing ...



  1. That must have been so frightening! He is doing well now?

  2. Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope he's doing okay now.

  3. That is so scary!!! I am glad he is ok.

  4. Oh Sarah, how scary! Glad he is doing okay now!! i did know about the ambulance transport. Seems strange, but good to know.
