3/27/17 ftf, wren

Had a quiet weekend with some good early morning hikes, some reading and a good bit of housecleaning.  I’ve lately become fascinated with the documentary depression-era photographs of several American artists, most particularly Dorothea Lange, and so I spent a lot of time engrossed with those.  My insurance statement from the first surgery and hospitalization arrived.  Without the insurance, it would have cost over $15,000, but because of my coverage, the cost to me was $0.  I’m very grateful to have that insurance, that’s for sure.  Now it’s back to the work world.



happy dog time!

  1. Eeee. The need for insurance to avoid those kind of bills is terrifying! o_O How are you feeling now all the treatment is over? You still need to be kind to yourself – don’t we all?! – and continue recuperation xx

    • You’re so right. And that was just the bills for one surgery! I haven’t added up the total cost for all of the doctor’s visits, surgeries, procedures and radiation but imagine it wouldn’t be something I could afford without insurance.

      I’m feeling much better, thanks, although still tiring easily. The radiation nurse told me the fatigue would probably last for a few months. She said that people who have surgery, radiation and chemo can take a full year to return to their normal levels of energy. But you’re right – there’s no need to wait until we’re sick to practice self care. 🙂
