    As I read the first part of your description, the alarm bells went off in my head __ $$$$$$$$$ !!! But when you got to the ¥ part, huge sigh of relief on your behalf.

    Glad it's all fixed. And, yes, prevention is much cheaper in the long run than letting illness or problems go untreated, but tell that to an industry that's run by bean-counters for whom long-term is the next set of quarterly figures.

      I sighed in relief, too.

      I wonder what it would cost if I were back home...smh...

        I had what was ultimately a minor medical problem but seemed at the time to be big, and I wound up in the ER and then the ICU overnight.

        Fortunately, it was during a brief period when I had insurance, as the bill was in the neighborhood of $7,000. Ten years ago, in a non-urban area where costs were much lower. Now, I suppose you'd have to multiply that by a factor of what?, five? ten?
