How much was that....? Feb.#2

So, if you haven't ever been to the ER and had an HSA insurance, you probably have never been subject to the shock. I took Trandon over to the ER Friday, we got there a little after 6:00 pm. He hadn't stopped screaming that his ear hurt since he got home from school, all the clinics didn't have appointments so to the ER we went. So after 3 freaking hours, we were taken back, then after a half hour the doc came in, sure enough about to burst, bad ear infection. So out we went, went over to pay, said just pay right now, they were kind enough after a 4 hour wait to give me a 20% discount and the bill came too.....178.00!!! the kicker, that wasn't even the doctors charges. So I paid almost 60/hr to hold up the freaking wall in the emergency room. Hey Obama, fix that you freaking socialist nut job. The wait was bad enough for paying customers, how about when everyone and their dog is getting governemtn hand out healthcare, what kind of wait do you think we will have then!!!???!!! Anyway, so yeh, I was miffed. then we went up and got our taxes done, I should have had my co workers just help me with them, eneded up paying 150.00 to get them done...OUCH... then it seems like everytime we go up north we can't get out of Sams/Maceys without spending a total of 500$. I just about flipped. Allison said that is why she leaves me home with the kids and what do I expect to go shopping once a month with a family of 6. How much was that again??? No freaking wonder I can't get a head to save my life.......

Lindsey knows exactly what you mean. In a two month period she has had 4 or 5 (can't remember which) MRI's for the same problem....numbness on the right side...now on the left. She has a syrnix (a fluid filled sac on her spinal cord in the neck area). That's why Dr's call it their "PRACTICE" and they made dang sure everyone else gets in on the action to boot. I told her to change her name to a south of the border flavor and it would be free...oh I mean courtesy of you and me. Luckily Lindsey has pretty decent insurance and still she has a very large portion of it she has to come up with. I told her to tell them you'll pay for the first one....they should have gotten all they could on that one. The Ray's feel your pain too...they wouldn't take out Bode's tonsil's and adenoids until they took several hundred dollars to the doctor and the hospital before it was scheduled. I don't want socialized medicine but we do need to quit paying for illegal aliens and cut down on what real American's have to pay out of pocket.

I stand strong behind you on the Obama Drama! We may be in for a world of hurt.... I was thinking we should all just move to Sweden...they already have the socialistic medicine down pat...18 month wait to take out your gallbladder doesn't sound all that bad... right?
Good to see you are among my blogging friends...
