How Much Did It Cost?

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I was having those horrible contraction-type pains?  I finally decided to go to an Urgent Care but quickly realized that they were going to send me to an ER when I told them that I had stomach pains because the Urgent Care Centers do not have the equipment to do a stomach scan.

"Here" is a reminder.

We got the bill today for this little trip to the ER and for 3.5 hours of service and an abdominal MRI the total was $4,880.  Holy crap! 

I don't even know what to say.


  1. I freaking hate doctors! Do you know how much we still owe on my arm (which we can't afford to see if it can be fixed) and wht we still owe for having Sam? A LOT!

  2. UGH! Makes me sick. I'm sure you freaked when you saw that bill. We have to pay on medical bills FOREVER to get them paid down and I think its PATHETIC! You poor thing :(

    I know when we brought Justin to dentist last week for his tooth incident, it was 159 bucks and the dentist saw him for MAYBE 8minutes. Then they told us they don't bill insurance on our first visit, so anything else we owe, they'll bill to our home....they didn't do ANYTHING but look at my poor boy's teeth.

  3. Wow!! Cost lots of $$ huh??
