Let the healing begin!

On 6/11/2009 I underwent surgery to fix my broken leg. Four hour surgery with seven incisions (2 big, 5 scope holes), seven screws, one plate and a complicated ACL evulsion fracture wire suture repair. I spent 2 nights and 3 days in the hospital. I just got the bill for the hospital only and it was $21,000! Thank goodness we are still on COBRA from having Asher and we have now met our max out of pocket for the year (finally something went our way). I will be completely none weight bearing for 12 weeks which makes for a long summer! I have already started physical therapy and can move much better and feel much better than before the surgery, however. I still suck on crutches, by the way, which makes for some good laughs! :)


  1. Thank goodness for COBRA and meeting the max. Wahoo! Yes, blessings in the unexpected ways are always a bonus. Get better fast and careful with the crutches!

  2. OMG! What happened? You poor thing, I'm so sorry to hear this! Speedy Recovery Miss Sara!

  3. Ha we just got the bill for IMC only and it was 42000.00
