$89.34 Makes Me Grateful

I just wrote a check for $89.34 to the hospital. That amount is greatly reduced from the original 18K bill we first received for having Tristan.

Growing up, I lived outside of Detroit when the automotive industry was booming. Excellent health benefits were one of the bonuses of living in that area. I never knew that some people just don't have health insurance until I moved to the South in 2000.

Thankfully, we live in the South and have excellent health insurance. With Chuck's early retirement from the Coast Guard, we will never go without health insurance. And today I am so thankful for that.

I sure do miss the navys medical. With Noah having a health condition we had the hardest time and are paying an arm and leg for his insurance and meds. We did get him on a waiver program to help with medical expences. Please be in prayer that we will get the news soon.
