Have you ever been in an ambulance? As a patient or with someone?

I have been in an ambulance 8 times. 5 times with my parents and 3 times as a patient. 2 times car accident and 1 time allergic reaction.

  • I have been in an ambulance once, and I was the one being transported. (From an E.R. to a larger hospital in a bigger metropolitan area about an hour away.)
    It was after I had injured myself (knife slipped while I was trying to cut the plastic band off a carton of Ben & Jerry's....) in the belly while 35 weeks pregnant with twins. (The huge belly was why I had no leverage, with my arms reached that far out in front of me to the counter, and I was rushing because I had left the ice cream out on the counter when I went to answer the phone, and so I was hurrying to cut the plastic when I got back.)
    Such a stressful mistake....

  • Yikes! That's a lot of ambulance riding!

    I got hit by a car once and was pretty glad to be riding in one, until they told me what hospital they were taking me to! A really amazing hospital was just down the street from where I got hit and they were rushing me across town to the broken down poor folks hospital. I made them turn that ambulance around!

  • Yes, once. I was riding with my daughter as they were transporting her from one ER to another when they THOUGHT she had appendicitis. Turned out to be really bad gas, but was still a long night.
