Not a prank, actually, just an update  

Krissy's pathology report finally came back. Out of three possible verdicts (benign, borderline, or malignant), her tumor has been classified as borderline. Meaning that, since all the affected organs are now out, she's probably just fine. But they will probably be monitoring her closely from now on, just to make sure nothing actually malignant crops up. Worst, worst case scenario, they'll have to do a hysterectomy several years from now. But no one's really expecting that.

So, it's not the 100% good news we were hoping for, but it's pretty good news nonetheless. If it had been malignant, she'd have to stay in the hospital and start chemo. As it is, they released her this morning, and she's back home with Mom and Ray. Still off her feet, obviously, but home is definitely better than the hospital. ^_^

Meanwhile, I started getting my medical bills. I had two ER visits, if you'll recall. $100 copay for each hospital visit... and $744 for each ambulance ride. =O At least, my insurance should be covering some of that, but I have no idea how much.

Current Mood: goodgood

You know, for almost $750 a ride, the ambulances should at least have a mini-bar, like limousines. So glad your sister can go home and doesn't have to do chemo, yay! :)

I'm still working on my April Fool's prank... I mean, there's already paint all over the house and footprints on the hood of the car, so I'm not sure a prank would make my life any weirder. lol. Happy april :)

Dude, seriously! All I got was a sodium IV drip and some oxygen. Lame! ;)

And thank you! I've been passing along everyone's well-wishes, she really enjoys hearing it. ^_^ Happy rainy season too, hehe!

Well, that's definately good news about Krissy. :) And as for medical bills up the ass, I'm sure there's a payment plan for the ambulance that you can latch onto.

Hehe, thanks! ^_^ The good thing is, even if I did have to pay all those bills in full, right now, I could do it. My bank account wouldn't be thrilled, but I could. Chances are, though, that my insurance will foot most of it. Probably not all of it, though, since I probably gave myself a high deductible when I set the insurance up. 'Cause back then, I didn't have any serious health issues. ;)

I should also deposit your check... sorry for being slow on that! ^_^*

It's always a bitch when stuff just pops up. I'm waiting for me to not have insurance, then something real shitty happens. We'll see what happens this summer. :) And yes, take your money. :p

I'll certainly be hoping nothing bad happens- ever!

Glad Krissy is back home. Home is the best place to recover from anything.
