$$ I'm Expensive $$

I got some statements from my ER visits & surgery today... WOW! The 1st ER trip cost $3,688.13- I guess I expected a price tag about that size. But, my 2nd ER trip & my surgery totally surprised me! The damage was $39,057.09- YIKES!
All I have to say is :
THANK YOU INSURANCE!

I went for my follow up appointment yesterday & got my bandages taken off; This is what I'm left with. My belly button looks WAY smaller to me...maybe he stitched it REALLY tight & made it shrink! My other 2 incisions are not bad at all... You can see the one on my right side... I have freckles that are bigger!!


Another fun filled experience happened to me today- I must be retarded, but I was leaving Gwen's house & as I was walking down her stairs I biffed it!
I mean, I ATE CRAP!!
Don't ask me how; all I know is I was on like the 3rd step from the top &
then I slid down to the bottom! I hit my butt SO hard I wouldn't be surprised it is totally bruised!! & I got a nice rug burn on my arm- the picture just doesn't do it justice!

Wow crazy! Yep insurance is great as long as they pay for it, we took Gaige in once for his asthma(first time we ever took one of kids to the er) and our insurance said it wasn't an emergency so we had a 1000 bill. Anyway sorry about the stairs NO fun!!

Ash, we are so glad that you are doing better and hopefully now, back to good health. (Except for the bruises, etc from the fall!!!) I read about your surgery from Gwen's blog and told her to give you our best. Glad to know that all is well now. XOXOXOX
