Lincoln had his 2nd cardiologist appointment. Dr. Gray actually said "The surgery was a success." I kinda laughed at this. Didn't we already know that. But then I started thinking about how lucky we are that he is doing so well. There are so many things that could have gone wrong. But they didn't, and the surgery was a success:) It's official.
The fluid is completely gone around Lincoln's heart, so he is off his Lasix. Wahoo! He also gained 2 pounds in 2 weeks! He is getting to be quite the chubby baby.
As the bills come pouring in, literally pouring, I am more and more grateful the we got medicaid. Lincoln was in the hospital for 36 days. He qualified for disability after 30, otherwise we would be paying 20 percent of Lincoln's bills. And like Will says, 20 percent of a lot equals a lot.
Don't get me wrong, I would have been equally grateful if Lincoln only had to stay in the hospital for 2 or 3 weeks. Every day was a struggle. All I know is God knows what he is doing. Never doubt him.
We finally saw the bill for the surgery.
Drum roll please..............
Worth every penny we're not paying. ;)
