A lot of my symptoms have either subsided or at least lessened a great deal. I've been behaving myself most of the time and following the docs orders to the tee, so to speak. The only complaint I have had was that I had put on about 10 lbs within about 3 days - needless to say, I was chapped, but hoping it was just the IV fluids. Surely it couldn't have been the hospital food. Yuck! I follow up with my cardiologist next week for a recheck.
Got the bill from the hospital in the mail today. I was terrified to open it, for fear that it would be horrible, since my other medical bills ream us. I was floored when I opened it and saw the total, over 48, 000 bucks. After I got my breath, I kept reading, and the balance we are responsible for was ZERO! Couldn't believe it but I sure won't argue abut that! Today's been kind of a crappy day, so that made up for it big time!
