A bout of pneumonia laid me low for a month back in '08. During my mastectomy a yr later, the anesthesiologist suctioned a liter of gunk out of me while the surgeon was working on my arm pit. I was very fortunate to be diagnosed early. . grin2

3. Hospital beds are the most uncomfortable creations ever made by man.

Probably intentional to make those who don't need to stay, leave, to free up beds for those who really do need them. whistle

I should start a raffle and see who comes the closest to the final bill!

The one think I currently have is great health insurance

My wife and I were trying to keep track but we lost the count.

As I recall my blood was sampled 26 times
I had my vitals checked every 4 hours
Had 23 chest xrays
5 CAT Scans
Intravenous Antibiotics every 6 hours
Lytic therapy twice a day which lasted 4 hours each was from 11 AM to 3 PM and 11 PM to 3AM (6 days)
6 IVs Plus 3 that were botched because I was so dehydrated at one point
2 complete sets of chest tubes. 1 set for the initial drain and lytic therapy and the other set post surgery.

I did have a private room and much was done in room (even most of the xrays) but sleep was when and where you could find it.

Woah! Glad you're doing ok.

In '89, I was 21 and had a collapsed lung. Only started out as an ache in my upper left shoulder. I only went to the doctor when I was lying on my back I could hear a squishing sound every time my heart would beat. Freaked me out! It was pushing an air bubble around.
Three separate tries to fix it...third left me with a stapled lung and a 10 inch scar which fixed it. 21 days. Awful food and yes, uncomfortable beds.

Glad your OK. That stuff is scary for sure.

I had a bout of walking pneumonia 5yrs ago or so. It really put me out of commission. I missed almost a week of work, several doc visits, rounds of meds and chest X-rays. I think the cough remained for a month or more. One thing I found out around that time with bloodwork is I had a very low vitamin D count. Getting my vitamin D levels back up by taking vitamin supplements helped my immune system immensely.

Medical bills are frightening. It makes you wonder with these $10k/day, $3mil+ hospital bills, do insurance companies really pay that much or do they negotiate it down behind the scenes? There's so many out there that have spent weeks or more hospitalized, there's no way they could pay out that much.
