  •  My gf recently (14+ / 0-)

    was knocked down in the street by several drunk men leaving a bar pregaming before the Super Bowl. She fell backwards, hit her head and ended up in the ICU for a week with bleeding in her brain. After several scary days the blood receded and she began to recover.

    We just got the bill this week. Her care at the hospital ended up costing 70,000 dollars, not including the ER visit/ambulance which tacked on another 5k for being ignored for three hours while she continued to slip in and out of conscience till I began yelling at the staff that she needed to be cat scanned and admitted now or she could have an embolism and die. They scanned her and had an oh shit moment and admitted her.

    Thankfully she had insurance so the final bill was 250$.
