Update on my baby nephew

Thanks to many, many prayers and positive thoughts from many LJ friends, friends and family, my 4 month old nephew is back home.

The medical bills have been astronomical. Thank God my brother and his wife are provided an excellent health.
Just to give you an idea as to how outrageous our medical system is, these are just a FEW of the bills I can remember he told me about:

1. The bill from the emergency room has not been received yet.
2. Bill for Children's hospital so far is about $30,000.00, and the bills continue to trickle in from people my brother has never heard of. The baby was in that hospital for 3 days, and on the 4th day he was taken out early in the morning.
3. At ambulance was $3,000.00
4. The crib for the baby was $3,000.00 per day. He used the crib 3 days, so that was $6,000.00.

When this baby nephew was born, the total price was $25,000.00!
What an abomination to charge such sinful prices for health care!

To those who left comments in my last post, and who sent me private messages, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
