I guess we assumed we had the baby paid off a while ago. But this week, 14 months after her birth, the bill from the hospital shows up. And now that we know her so well, now that we know she will not willingly sleep for more than two hours at a time, now that we’ve witnessed the fits during which she throws herself to the floor and screams… we honestly have to consider: Is she worth $2,924.60?
Oh, don’t worry, we’re going to keep her. But I think hospitals everywhere need to reconsider their billing schedules.
