Priceless.


60 minute use of an operating room: $10,687.00.

Eight day "room and board" for a hospital room: $14,976.00.

9 "pokes" by the lab: $2,200.00.


Knowing my little girl is healed and healthy: Priceless.

  3. Priceless indeed. I'm so glad she's healthy again.

    Still, it's daunting. We have a $6000 per person deductible and it's killing us. Adrienne says she'd work 10 jobs and I understand the sentiment, but not the time management. I'm having a horrible time trying to figure out how to pay off my husband, son and daughter's various medical bills, not to mention the fact that we all need glasses.

  4. That is so, so, so very true. When my husband and I lost our baby, the total bill rang in around $6500....I'm pretty sure it would have been cheaper to have had a baby......but he says it was all worth it knowing I was okay.

    Love knows no bounds.

  13. I don't think we can ever put a price on our children but it certainly makes living in Australia a joy.

    All public hospital stays and operations covered by medicare which comes out of our tax, so you don't even notice it.

    Glad your daughter is happy and healthy :)

    Cheers, Fi

  15. I am so glad your daughter is doing well! I can't imagine...I thank God everyday that my children are healthy.
    And will say extra special thanks for living in Canada....I've had 1 knee surgery, 3 pregnancies - one of which involved a 5 week in hospital stay due to pre-term labour risk, and 3 C-Sections:
    total cost to me?
    0. yes, that's a Zero.
