Private Hospital Details

Last Wednesday evening I got a wasp sting. I've had a number of them with no problem. Within 45 minutes hives started, I took Benedryl and passed out due to low blood pressure before he could get me to the hospital. Got me there, they IV'd a couple of things into me, I went home in less than two hours. Total bill, 2,100 pesos. OMG

He had an accident on the stairs and took a sharp corner in the abdomen. Caused a hernia. Had the surgery Monday, was only in for 6 hours, and so far no swelling, discoloration, pain, nothing. 4 surgeons, anesthesiologist, all the details including for paying for the overnight we didn't need 35,850 pesos. That is 1600 USD. They are amazed, and he is only taking Tylenol.

Stress levels have been high this week, but I swam this morning and he'll likely join me in just a couple of days. It's gotta get better!!!
