Safely Through Surgery

February 26th, 2016 at 02:37 pm

My son made it safely through his sinus surgery yesterday morning and has been miserable ever since. His sister volunteered to stay up with him all night to keep him company and keep his pain pills going into him at the proper time, since I didn't really sleep the night before. The packing comes out this morning at 9:30 and then he should be able to come home and get some sleep. And breathe.

We had to pay $1300 up front before the surgery which I did last week. I am not sure where we will be with medical bills afterwards. I know that he is pretty close to meeting his personal deductible now if he hasn't already. Personal deductible is $3000. At least the PD also counts towards the family deductible.

I wish medical care wasn't so ridiculous in this country. It didn't used to be.

    The hardest part about surgery is that recovery often feels worse than what went before. But it's worth it in the long run. Yes, medical care is crazy. I remember when going to the doctor was no big deal. I remember paying $25 for an office visit. Not the copay, that was the whole price!

    Oh geesh. Thinking of you. It's hard to watch your children suffer, even for a little bit. And I know how painful the bills are.

    Good to get that over with, though sounds like recovery is the hard part.

    That's good his sister was willing to help both you and him out. Sounds like she was raised right. Smile
