Ambulance Ride

Thursday, November 30th, 2000
Well, I found out what an ambulance ride is like (and how much it cost) to get through the mountains to Santa Clarita, over an hour away.  I was having severe heart palpitations, and of course our fear was that it was a heart attack.  I spent the day in the Henry Mayo hospital ER, while doctors poked and prodded, tooks X-rays, and CAT Scans.  I was discharged with a clean bill of health, but confused.  I believe that I had a negative reaction to the medications I had been prescribed. Not fun.
Oh, in case your are curious, the door to door fee, from my house to the ER -- $1750. Now THAT is painful.
