Looks like winter is coming. Someone was very industrious.
Surely not me.
I spent the day on the couch with Roy.
I took Motrin and Flexeril, and slept half the morning. Took Roy for a short walk, and back to the couch.
I drank tea.
I didn't read.
I didn't knit.
I didn't do one single thing, not even watch TV.
But I have been wondering if that's what I needed.
Maybe everyone is right, maybe I have been doing too much.
Nothing much moves me.
This does however.
I just got a total for my surgery......most of which is being paid by Medicare and United Health Care.
The total hospital cost, (not doctor fees) was $239,614.24.
The rods in my neck were $57, 747.90. Geesh, they must be made of diamonds.
Is titanium that expensive???
The physical therapist that walked me down the hall a couple of times, and up a flight of stairs.
Intensive care ( I was there for 24 hours) $10,142.00.
Semi private room for 3 nights: $16,950.00
A sunny day, an Adirondack Mountain lake, a good friend.
Thanks to all of you for your kind words. Pain makes you feel alone, even when you're clearly not.
