In no way comparing this to losing a spouse but I got a medical bill today and it made me think of this thread. About 6 weeks ago my son woke up with extreme internal pain and I drove him to the ER. Turned out to just be a kidney stone that he passed by himself. We have good insurance and I have to pay just a $50 deductible for the ER visit but for tests and sitting around the ER lobby on a 2 hour visit the entire bill was $9600!
