MRD, look at one of the less ritzy hospitals, and that price will drop by half, I bet. That's how my surgery was - $5300 as opposed to $8500 at the fancy one, and there was absolutely NOTHING wrong with the place I went to, and the hotel they put me in afterward was pretty upscale, probably 4 star. Let me know if you have to wait, and maybe we can both go, if I can save up a few bucks (I should be down to a reasonable size to take off my apron by then)
I also got my bald eyebrows tattooed back on. Here, it's $350-800, but I got them for $60 - in my hotel room!
Here's my hospital room. The double bed is for your traveling companion, who stays with you and eats free. I had a normal hospital bed only bigger than regular.
The Last Supper; tortilla soup, broth only, and a giant Pomegranate Margarita. Booze is a clear liqid; even the doctor said "well...yeah" and laughed. My sister idn't like hers so I got half of it too. I don't see myself being able to HOLD enough of anything to waste calories on alcohol for quite a while, so this was fun.
