Little H has been in the hospital for 54 days. On 11 July, I finally plucked the courage to go to Patient Services Centre to get an interim bill. I needed to know what was the bill so far.
I calculated that if he were to remain warded for another month, the total would be about 130k. After government subsidy, his and our medisave, there would still be some leftover that we would need to pay.
I’ll think about that later. For now, his health and recovery is what’s most important. As the husband puts it, money can always be found and earned. But health? You can’t put a price on health, or rather, you can’t put a price on life.
