Dr came to see Josiah about his neck stiffness/pain and has recommended we take him to the ER, as he now also has swelling along his jawline, and can't open his mouth wide enough to talk or chew properly :o/
So... the total bill for 2 days in the hospital was ~$17000 (so far) not including the ER portion, and any bills direct from doctors who bill separately for their services. I've never understood how that works, since we are told by our primary physician that we need to go to the ER. Then the ER people tell us we need to be admitted...
My health insurance company is so difficult to deal with. After weeks I finally received the form and filled it in and mailed it back, only to receive an answer so weird that I believe they are referring to the wrong person. Just one little change is all I'm asking. (I will even beg, if it helps.)
So I'm in the middle of short story where human explorers find an alien that looks like a gigantic penis in the frozen oceans of Europa. I'm just waiting for the punchline now. The moneyshot, as it were.
Just received email with the amount for my bonus pay. I was pleased; it is the highest I have ever received. Timing is perfect. Being the single provider has proven to be challenging at the best of times.
