Angie told me we got a pre-bill from OHSU for my colectomy and it's for $37,000. That's not counting this hospital stay, or my second colon surgery later this year.
Hopefully my insurance covers most of that.
I just got home from another hospital stay for an "obstructed bowel" this time. I really can't win with this whole colon thing. Even from beyond the grave it's causing me problems. So far this year I've spent 12.5 days in the hospital. Considering we're only 33 days into 2007 that translates to 37.9% of my year so far spent in a hospital. Ugh.
