    But I'll leave you with this as i'm getting close to that stage, maybe .

    Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. A student nurse found an elderly gentleman already dressed & sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn't need any help to leave the hospital.

    After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly agreed to let me wheel him to the elevator. On the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him. "I don't know" he said "she's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown".

    Not really, Gooser.

    I'm reading on news flashes that Baxter, the dog, was signed up in your state, CO before his owner. Now I've seen a couple of your training partners expound on dog insurance, looks like the POTUS fixed that for them. The article didn't cite cost but I'm sure it would be reasonable as dogs would show as young by government standards .

    I know I have spent a lot more time at the vet's office than the Dr's office in the last year.
    Ever get a bill and be able to compare same amount of time etc for a similiar issue.
    Try a bill for a blood work up with the same basic things tested. The dog bill will be 1/4 of the charge if you exclude the insurance negotiated charges.
    How about a couple of stitches to close a cut.
    It is the overhead for filing claims, insurance etc.
    Oh, another little known fact. If blood is sent out to be run for A,B,C it actually gets run for A-Z but you pay more for A-Z vs ABC. It's cheaper to run the sample thru everything than switch it up to scan for specifics. Same with urine.
