Just got a statement from our insurance company saying what they were billed by the hospital for Ace's stay.
2 months + 1 baby + 1 intensive care environment: $193,000 and some change.
$193,000 - insurance = $150.
That'll be the sweetest check we ever wrote. Actually, I thought it'd be considerably more, considering my stay was $65K for 8 days.
This, of course, doesn't include the gas we spent going back and forth to the hospital twice a day. And the money spent eating out.
I'm so gosh darn glad he's home, despite my last post, I swear. I'm telling y'all, even when he's screaming in my face and I can't figure out why, all I want to do is hold him and kiss him. It's hard for me to put him in his bed at night because I just want to feel him in my arms all the time. What I feel for him is more than love, and not to sound condescending or excluding, but I can't explain the love I have for him to someone that's not a mother. This child is so beautiful... Have you ever felt your entire body fill with love? I know it sound romantic and cheesy, but it's how I feel when I look at him, and he's sleeping, or just looking around and is so innocent and in need of protection and nurturing. GOSH I love being a mom.
