Well survived another 5 days in the hospital
 . This time they were putting a skin graft over the giant hole they made in my left leg, they pulled the skin graft from my right leg, so now both legs have big giant wraps on them... lol. Sad part is the skin graft donner site hurst way, way, way more than the big hole - go figure. Basically I describe the skin graft as a really bad case of road rash
.

Doctors are happy with the results of the skin graft, they said it had about a 95% take. Now I just change both the bandages 2x a day and home care shows up a few time a week to see how the wounds are healing. Still gonna be out of work untill the 1st of next month,  but we will survive.

Hope you all are doing well, I won't be on the computer a lot since sitting is kind of uncomfortable.

OK..... so few months back for those that followed the fun, I had a flesh eating virus my inner, upper, left thigh. Long story short I look like a shark attack victim... lol. Just got the summary of the costs submitted to my insurance so far.......

.... this includes two hospital stays....


.... 5 surgerys ....


.... and a ton of other stuff....


..... grand sum total so far: $155,163.81


.... so my question is how much is that in pulled pork?
 Think they would take barter?

Johnny - just send the bills the insurance wont pay to Bear. He has an unlimited supply of spare cash.  I would think that that amount of money would be enough to feed the entire forum for a long time

Maybe when they figure it all out, they'll overcharge you like Giant did with my 11 pounds of Ribeyes. Then they'll give you all your money back.

OOOOPS, I guess they don't have the same policy as Giant.

Glad you're just about fully recovered.

At the very least he can growl at them and make them forget about the bill.... lol
