So I am at my mother's house yesterday and we were talking. As I am getting ready to leave her place and go home, I pull Charlie closer to me and as he comes next to my body his head hit my throat. I did not feel good and it started hurting a lot!
I couldn't swallow, talk and it was hurting to breathe. I went to Urgent Care by myself, and had a piece of paper with me to tell my story. The doctor scolded me for coming alone and then sent me to the ER to make sure I was ok. So they called Josh, cause I couldn't, and he picked me up and we went to the ER.
While we were in the ER waiting there was an incident with another patient that had us laughing. There was a lady there wanting to know when she would be seen and the nurse told her it would take awhile since some people did have emergencies and the medics that helped her come in didn't think her pain was. She got so mad and started going off and made a huge scene in the hospital. They called my name before her and we were hoping she wouldn't say anything since we arrived three hours after she did.
The doctor said I had a bruised trachea and that it would take 2-3 weeks to heal. We spent about an hour in the ER which is a record for us. When we were leaving the lady that made that scene was still sitting in the same spot. Needless to say Josh and I got out of there quickly.
A lesson learned from my 10 year old self.
