...and could go back four weeks, maybe I could afford to retire to the Caribbean! (Well, only if I could see what was ahead and make a few changes, but let's pretend...)
Each day my mailbox holds another disappointment in the form of a medical bill or Explanation of [no] Benefits. I'm starting to think that my upside-down journey down the stairs could be the last trip I take for a while. A few more unreimbursed medical expenses and this adventure will rival the cost of my daughter's wedding. (At least that was money well-spent.)
What if, instead of spending all this money for the pleasure of lounging on my sofa/throne and barking orders at my (poor, overworked) husband for 2 months, I could make a downpayment on a beachside house in St. Croix? Heck, an oceanview tent would be better than this.
