Superquick…

Jake’s home! He’s happy and mobile and, well, Jakey! Barbara’s going to blog more about him, but I though you guys would like to know. (On the other hand, the total cost has exceeded $1450, so all those donations are even more appreciated!!)

On this day..

  • Thanks for the update. I’m glad to hear that Jake had his surgery and that he’s home and recovering. I know my memory is terrible, but didn’t they quote you like $700.00 for his surgery? Did they run into a lot of complications?

  • Yeah, Marie, they did quote us that. And they didn’t lie. The actual surgical procedure was $740.

    But we (perhaps naively) assumed that was “all inclusive” and didn’t ask more questions. Unfortunately, that number didn’t include things like anesthetic, medicines, IVs, hospital stay, and a bunch of other stuff. I don’t fault Cottonwood, because they answered the question we asked, and they undoubtedly assumed that we knew that there would be substantial associated costs.

    The most important thing is that there were NOT any complications and Jake is doing extremely well. He’ll be wearing a bandage around his chest/shoulders for a while, but he’s not even picking at it. What a good boy!

  • I’m so glad he’s doing well! You need to let us know if you’re short $. Can’t wait to hear more! Thanks for letting us know he’s OK.
