Fell On Ice, New CC, Insurance

December 9th, 2018 at 12:02 pm

So Friday morning the garage door remote wasn't working. I had to get out of my car to close the door. I wasn't thinking about where I was stepping, or how.

Both feet slipped right out from under me and I landed flat on my back. I don't think I hit my head. (I was wearing a banana clip, so unless I hit the side of my head …)

I was able to get right up with no issues and continued to work. A few hours later I started really feeling it.

My supervisor let me leave 30 minutes early so I could go to my chiropractor. So frustrating because I'd just gotten my back to feeling good.

DH got a strongly worded email suggesting that something needed to be done about the driveway. He did put some salt down when he got home from work.

I bought a couple gel packs from Walgreens that can be frozen or heated, and a thing of Tiger balm. DH says I smell like I'm in a horse barn. Oh well, it's helping.

I've spent most of the weekend icing/resting my back.
I applied for the Citi Savor card. A $500 bonus after a $3k spend. That will be easy - just pay all the medical bills on it, and will be mostly there.

Lemonade out of lemons and all that.

Speaking of insurance. I think I mentioned the check we received for $932 from the insurance company. I had no idea what it was for.

We also had received a bill from the ambulance company for $1004.

Come to find out that since the ambulance wasn't under contract with our insurance, they couldn't pay them directly. So .. they sent us the money to pay them.

Works for me - that's nearly 1/3 of the CC spend needed. It just seems really bizarre.

    Wow! A fall on the ice smarts. You did wise to go to the chiropractor, take it easy and use Tiger Balm (love that stuff!). I hope you feel 100% very soon.

    Sorry about your fall! Winter is scary that way -- I fell four times in one winter a few years ago!

    Oweee. I just started physical therapy last week after my 9/30/18 motor vehicle accident. First accident I have been in. I have to pay all the bills then submit to State Farm which is both my insurance and the at fault driver who plowed into the car in back of me causing a 4 car pile up. They did get my totaled car reimbursement fast. I hope you feel better soon.
