From almost no debt to massive debt in less than 90 days

January 20th, 2010 at 12:54 pm

or massive to us.

I haven't been around much because I got busy with work and other things. Then the man person ended up back in the hospital this past weekend. The stents that were put in back in November were 95% clogged so his interventionist put in medicated stents yesterday. The man should be out of the hospital this morning. I hope.

We have no clue how much this bill is going to be but my guess is it's going to be more than the last one. For one thing, he was in ER for 6 hours then in a room from Saturday evening to Monday waiting to see his physician. Then yesterday they finally put the stents in.

So, before November we had about $300 in debt and now we're probably well over $125,000 in debt. How discouraging. We can either ignore the bills or set up payment plans and I'm sure we'll go with payment plans but we'll probably die still owing on them.

The good news is the man person hasn't had a cigarette since Saturday and realizes this is the perfect time to quit. So, we're both going to quit. The money we save on smokes will help pay for the Plavix he's going to have to take for the next year to two years.

I'll post more later but that's where things stand with me right now.

    Hope all goes well for the man person!

    I take it you don't have health insurance? $125,000 seems high -- I was in the hospital for a similar amount of time and the hospital bill, including the surgery, was $39,000. Maybe it won't be as bad as you think.

    Take care! Best wishes for successful quiting. You won't regret it.

    Good luck on quitting smoking, I know how difficult it can be, but hopefully doing it together will help. If you don't have health insurance, go to this website:
    http://www.bmspaf.org/index.html where you may qualify for free or reduced Plavix from the manufacturer. Hope this helps.

    Don't be afraid to negotiate with the hospital for lower fees.
