Here I am, trying to be a real person today. First full day back at work, and I'm already tired at 9:15 in the morning. I'm really not sure what's going on – I've been doing so well through this whole thing, and now I've been absolutely exhausted for the last two days and want to do nothing but lay in bed all day.
I'm sure it's all part of the healing process, but I'm ready to be done already. I want my energy level back! My enthusiasm! My ability to sleep between the hours of 11pm and 7am! Is that too much to ask?
On a completely unrelated note, I got my insurance statement for my surgery. My one-day stay in the hospital – not counting the surgeon, anesthesiologist, assistant, etc. – just the stay – was billed at somewhere around $50,000. I say somewhere, because they've apparenty tried to bill it three times, for between $45,000 and $54,000. Of course the insurance company doesn't allow them to bill that much, and the actual amount paid will be much lower, but that is just absolutely ludicrous for a 33-hour hospital stay, in my opinion.
The whole thing's only going to cost us around $1,000 out-of-pocket, and then we've met our deductible for the year. I told J this is the time to see a doctor if he needs to, 'cause it's free until January 1!
