In 2006, we spent $10,072 for Medical Insurance, co-pays and Froggy's meds.
To put that in perspective, it's more than 1/4 of our income going to deductibles, insurance and meds.
And...we have Medicare, California Children's Services and Blue Cross.
I can't complain, because Froggy is worth every penny and more, but I think I might cry.
I'm just hoping my fortune cookie was right the other night (and I should not be spending money on Chinese take-out, geeeeesh!), "The star of riches is shining on you." We are rich in so many other ways, but if you could take a moment to imagine us with a winning lottery ticket, or finding the Hope diamond in a sandpile at the park, well, that would be great.
