All it should have taken

was anti-venom.

Severe symptoms can be life-threatening and must be treated with antivenin, a prescription medication. Antivenin is given intravenously with fluids. Other therapy may include numerous laboratory tests, antibiotics and an update on the tetanus shot, if needed.

She spent 3 days in intensive care.

In another situation, a friend of mine in Florida had to demand the release of his 88 year old mother from a hospital.

She went in because of a heart murmur it became the opening prelude to an open heart procedure.

A battery of expensive tests and a lot of billing.

ka ching.

BTW - His mom is doing fine.

That was sad

and scary glad to see she is ok.

yes very sad

imagine having to work several years just to pay it off.

I am happy there are very few snakes here in Canada and health insurance costs me nothing.

legalize: You are paying for it....

Your health insurance already costs you in service but will really cost you when America's healthcare system quits demanding innovation after socialization. Right now socialized systems are free riders on America's private system demanding innovation...that is changing we are removing the incentive.

lived in 10 countries

all of them are broke and bankrupt...but I am free not paying tax because I have very small income here.

Talk about expensive,

The newly approved breakthrough prostate cancer vaccine, Provenge, costs $93,000 for the three dose treatment. And for that you can expect to outlive someone not treated with the vaccine by four months.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

5 stars

bump.

Thanks.
