WHOA! We got Liam's hospital bill today. We knew he was a million dollar baby- the nurses told us the bed alone was 1,000 dollars a day but it is another thing to see the bill. For JUST his hospitalization (not included surgeries and specialists called in etc...) it came to $545,461.50!

UPDATE- Yes we have insurance- but that doesn't help some people. Families of preemies can get kicked out of their insurance because they meet the lifetime cap!

WOAH! I hope you guys have some sort of health insurance. That is crazy! But worth every penny I'm sure!

Liam is worth every penny! Your our million dollar baby. :) And you had awesome care!

Wow! Yes, Liam is worth every penny. I also hope you have health insurance, but I wonder if Medicaid covers the babies whose parents aren't fortunate enough to have private health insurance. Everyone should have health insurance in a country like America.

Well Jennifer no matter what happens with insurance or anything else. You can always be sure that Gods hand is in it. And knowing you like I do, I know you already are praying earnestly that God will take this situation bills and all, and use it for his glory. We love you and are praying for you. Miss you too!

That is very unfair about what you wrote in your update. Like anyone would choose to have their baby prematurely. And to be punished for getting quality care for your child by getting kicked off the insurance plan is plain stupid. That makes me mad! I hope you guys are able to keep your insurance. And God bless your little boy! :-)
