The 3 Criteria to Enter a Hospital OR The only way I'll enter an ER

1. You know a doctor on the inside.
2. They know you are coming.
3. You are a V.I.P. Very important patient.

Step 1 is complete. I know a guy. He knows me. I am his special snowflake and if I have serious problems he helps me out.

Step 2 is complete. Aforementioned doctor is calling ahead and letting them know I am coming. I'll get there in about an hour, so they will have plenty of time to move me to the front of the line.

Step 3 is tricky. I am bleeding a much larger amount out of my ostomy site and in a larger amount of pain and with a prolapse (at this point, I'd say probably a serious prolapse) plus I have the doc's on my side. This is one of those things that either your condition is life threatening or just so super unique that you get bumped to the front. Because seriously, why wait in line for six hours when you can have fun for five, get to a life threatening point, and then get admitted in one.

So yeah. I'm on my way to the hopsital as soon as my phone gets a decent charge to it. Those of you that followed the Hand of God thread will recognize that I injured myself during rockwall climbing. This may be a direct result of that. Those of you at StrokePAX 2011 may remember I was chomping down pain meds. This is why.

    Man it's just intestinal bleeding. Same old song and dance. Could be serious, could not be. It's just become annoying to the point that it has to be dealt with.

    I mainly made this thread because I need something to do while my phone charges. Like hell am I gonna drive an hour with a dead phone/gps

    That's why I don't go to the ER unless the 3 criterion are met.

    3 Criteria. One criterion, multiple criteria.

    Obviously snarking on a grievously sick man's grammar is the best possible response.

    oh hey the hospital has wifi

    I got the basic dose of pain meds which are already wearing off and they are doing tests to see if this needs immediate action or not.

    Pushing the prolapse back into the socket caused a lot of pain. Or as the liars call it "pressure"

    My knee was out for 3 hours while I waited in the ER

    I was in a wheelchair with my leg resting on the chair infront of me, over the course of the 3 hours I'd slowly been straightening it, and in the course of me be taken to the room it snapped back in

    took months before I could run again
