See the background on the previous entry. I had two glasses of wine at dinner. I came home and I lost consciousness. I called for my landlord and she came down to help me into bed. Three hours later, I got up to go to the bathroom and take my evening pills. I went into the bathroom and lost consciousness again. I must have hit the open cabinet door. It was barely hanging on one bent hinge. I hit the corner of something. It was either the cabinet door or the edge of the cat tray shelter. It hit the bridge of my nose and tore downward about an inch to the bone in my nose which is fractured. I pushed the flap of skin back up to cover the wound. My landlord called 911. They took me to the hospital. I was dehydrated according to the blood test which could have caused the fall.
Why on earth would your landlord bear any responsibility? Isn't this really just your physical/medical situation? If anything, your landlord seems to have gone out of her way to be of assistance to you. Honestly, I don't understand why this question is being asked.
