But that was through OHSU, Providence required no such down payment on abdominal surgery...but by then my out of pocket max was already hit so maybe they woulda wanted one also if I hadn't already been tapped out.

I am a woman of various inclinations and only some of the time are they to burn everything down in frustration

And if you can't come up with a way to pay, what, no hospital for you? That seems pretty damn wrong.

GS: If you had to choose between kicking evil in the head or the behind, which would you choose, and why? Minsc: I'm not sure I understand the question. I have two feet, do I not? You do not take a small plate when the feast of evil welcomes seconds.

I had to put down a $600 deposit before orthapedic surgery in 2014 :/ And of course only had, like, 200 and change left on my flex spending card and had to use 2 cards to pay it.

Ouch! We've still got room on our Flex card to cover it, but I'd never heard of anyone doing this before today. The lack of more than 18 hours notice was kind of off-putting as well.

And separately, I hope the surgery is easy and recovery smooth and your new doc finds out some useful stuff that helps you out.

Thank you. I'll definitely be happy if some answers come out of this.

Love is stronger than death and harder than sorrow. Those who practice it are fierce like the light of stars traveling eons to pierce the night.

Kalshane, good luck getting answers from the new doc and new procedure.

Good luck, Kalahane!

T, that sounds obnoxious! People should cc you!

I am still feeling like crap, and not sure what to do with myself. I hate to just zone out and watch law and order on endless repeat, but I'm not sure my brain can handle much else

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

That sounds AWESOME.

Now let us crush something soft and watch it fountain blood. That is a girlish thing to want to do, yes?

Y'all, that thread change was EPIC
