Hello everyone! Sorry I'm late this week, it's been a pretty busy time for us. It's good that I am late though because he is regulating his temperature all by himself today! He's not had the heater on for about 5 hours and is at the exact temperature he needs to be. The nurse said "I've never seen a baby so little act so big".

Idk what y'alls insurance situation is like but, My son was in the nicu for 22 days. It felt like forever and the whole time i kicked myself over the idea that his bills were going to be astronomical. However we've finally gotten the bills. Well certainly his room bill was over 100000 before insurance took care of it. But he met his deductible for the year before he ever made it to the nicu. Everything has been covered. I think what we owe the insurance is something like 9000 which we are definitely going to take our time with.

Our guy was 62 days and $682,000. Paid $6000 out of pocket, and it was ran through an HSA first, so really about $5000 after tax savings.
