I am so scared right now. I'm going into the hospital today I think and I still don't have my insurance card. I have a paper saying I have something like insurance but I can't find it and should be getting a card but I don't know. Will they have to admit me anyway. I'm so scared and in pain. I've also messed up my Facebook beyond belief. Everything is just a complete mess.

My thoughts are with you. I know you'll get out of this safe and sound!

They decided to send me in tomorrow and my cancer doctor said he'll get me in one way or another, I wish I could do in home treatment, so I wouldn't have to stay at the hospital, Thank you so much for your support. Hearing from people is so nice. I've always felt so shy around the community so hearing that people actually care and aren't just bored by my posts has been nice. Thank you. It means a lot!

I am 99% sure that, legally, they can't refuse you. That they have to let you in and treat you and then deal with the insurance issues later. If they give you flack, you tell them that (though at this point you probably are already at the hospital, so.)

Here is the story I said I was going to tell you and then I was in Illinois I didn't have much time on the computer:

When I was in junior high, my Girl Scout leader was diagnosed with liver cancer. She was in her 40s and in relatively good health until her diagnosis, but the cancer was pretty severe at the time when she was diagnosed. I think Stage III. Anyway, the doctors estimated she maybe--maybe--had a year to live. Her daughter was in 8th grade at the time, and Carolyn (the Girl Scout leader) said, "I am going to at least see my daughter finish junior high."

She did. And she didn't just see her daughter graduate, either; she participated fully in all our Girl Scout events. She ran the big county-wide jamboree for four more years before she decided it was too much for her. Her cancer went into remission, for a while, during my high school years. When it came back, it was a lot stronger and wider-spread, and the doctors said she maybe had six months.

Her daughter was almost out of high school, then, and her vow was to see her daughter graduate high school. And she did. She also saw her son, who was two years younger than her daughter, finish his high school career. And when she finally died, her daughter was about four months from finishing college.

When I was 13, Carolyn was given a year, tops. And I was 21 when I went to her funeral.

I guess my point in telling you this is that cancer is a fickle bastard, and a lot of times, the odds are just a worst-case scenario, and not what actually happens.

Thank you so much for the information. It means a lot that you would take the time to tell me this. Sometimes I have such horrible brain fog that numbers and time just confuse the heck out of me. I'm feeling so lost and confused at the moment that just reading this is bringing me comfort.

I sadly don't know about medical business, but like the user above me said, I am sure they aren't allowed to refuse you. You might just get a bill later on. I pray for your recover dear. Let me know if you ever need anything.
